La Somme appelle Mirroir des Justices vel Speculum Iusticiariorum [etc.]. Wing H2790
First edition of a unique medieval law book, a bemused Maitland wondering whether its author was a "lawyer, antiquary . . . pedant, faddist [or] romantic" and called by Plucknett "certainly the most fantastic work in our legal literature". Contemporary unlettered sheep, definite wear and staining, the binding strained, yet a good unsophisticated copy. Printed by E.G. for Matthew Walbanke and Richard Best [etc.], London, 1642.
