The history of English law before the time of Edward I by Frederick Pollock( Book )

198 editions published between 1895 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 4,034 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1895, Sir Frederick Pollock and Frederic William Maitland's legal classic The History of English Law before the Time of Edward I expanded the work of Sir Edward Coke and William Blackstone by exploring the origins of key aspects of English common law and society and with them the development of individual rights as these were gradually carved out from the authority of the Crown and the Church. Although it has been more than a century since its initial publication, Pollock and Maitland's work is still considered an accessible and useful foundational reference for scholars of medieval English law. Volume one begins with an examination of Anglo-Saxon law, goes on to consider the changes in law introduced by the Normans, then moves to the twelfth-century "Age of Glanvill," with the first great compilation of English laws and customs, followed by the thirteenth-century "Age of Bracton," author of another major treatise on the same subject. Volume two takes up different areas of English law topic by topic, or as its authors labeled it, "The Doctrines of English Law in the Early Middle Ages." They consider land tenure, marriage and wardship, fealty, the ranks of men both free and unfree, aliens, Jews, excommunicates, women, and the churches and the King, before turning to the various jurisdictions of that decentralized era.-- Back cover
The constitutional history of England : a course of lectures by Frederic William Maitland( Book )

229 editions published between 1908 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,051 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A radical reappraisal of the impact of Constantine's adoption of Christianity in 368 AD on the later Roman world, and on Western civilization. Adopting those aspects of the religion that suited his purposes, Constantine turned Rome on a course from the relatively open, tolerant and pluralistic civilization of the Hellenistic world, towards a culture that was based on the rule of fixed authority. Only a thousand years later, with the Renaissance and the emergence of modern science, did Europe begin to free itself from the effects of Constantine's decision, yet the effects of his establishment of Christianity as a state religion remain with us, in many respects, today.--From publisher description

Bracton's note book : a collection of cases decided in the King's Courts during the Reign of Henry the Third by Henry de Bracton( Book )

43 editions published between 1887 and 2010 in English and Latin and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry of Bracton (or Bratton) (c. 1210?1268) was a jurist who worked as a Justice of Assize in the south-west of England, and was the author of the first systematic discussion of English common law. The manuscripts which form Bracton's Note Book were discovered in the British Museum in 1884 by Vinogradoff, and were edited in three volumes in 1887 by Maitland. These volumes contain a collection of over 2,000 lawsuits from the thirteenth century, each with a description of how the law should be applied to the particular circumstances of each case. This is the first example of case law in English legal writing, and its usefulness as a record of legal precedent probably led to the creation of Year Rolls (official records of court cases) from 1268. Volume 1, 'Apparatus', introduces the texts and gives an account of Bracton's life

Hobbes by Leslie Stephen( Book )

6 editions published in 1904 in English and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the age of eighty-four, Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679) wrote an autobiography in Latin elegaics. Unsurprisingly, it was not as widely read as his two great philosophical works, Leviathan and Behemoth, in which he laid out a set of sociopolitical theories that enraged many of the philosophers and moralists of Europe. In this comprehensive biography, first published in 1904, Sir Leslie Stephen (1832-1904) charts the character and changes of Hobbes' thinking, from the scholasticism of his early Oxford education, to his later devotion

"As the Downing Professor of the Laws of England, F. W. Maitland lectured on equity at Cambridge for 18 years, ending in 1906. The lectures were first published in 1909 under the editorship of A. H. Chaytor and W. J. Whittaker. They were reprinted seven times before being published in 1936 in a second edition edited by J. Brunyate, who added some notes to Maitland's lectures. This edition is replicated here. Equity is an important aspect of English law. Its rules grew up to supplement Common Law and largely concern such matters as wills and trusts. "--Publisher's website
