Rastell, William (comp.)
A Collection in English, of the Statutes now in force, continued from the beginning of Magna Charta, made in the 9 yeere of the reigne of King H.3. vntill . . . the 35 yeere of the Reigne of our gratious Queene Elizabeth [etc.]. S.T.C. 9319; Cowley 89
One of Rastell's two significant contributions to legal literature, in John Baker's words "ambitious . . . a valuable reference [and of] enormous success", arranging the statutes alphabetically and far surpassing all previous efforts. Modern calf, the original boards mounted, repairs to the lower margins of the title and next leaf (no text affected), else quite clean. Imprinted . . . by the deputies of Christopher Barker [etc.], London, 1594.
