Selden Society. Annual Series. Vols. 1-80 (1887-1963)
1963 - The First 76 years of the Selden Society Year Books Selden Society. Annual Series. Vols. 1 to 80 (1887-1963). London: Selden Society, 1887-1963. Original blue gilt stamped cloth, light shelfwear. Ex-library with location labels at foot of spines and stamps, else a very good set. Interiors otherwise clean. Reprint Price USD 7,512. * A detailed list of the contents of each volume is available. The Selden Society's principal achievement has been the publication of its annual series, which includes essential source materials of the common law, including law reports dating back to the Middle Ages (known as the Year Books), plea rolls and courts' records, eyre rolls of itinerant justices, select leading cases in the courts of King's Bench, Chancery, Star Chamber, Admiralty, Requests, Exchequer Chamber, and Privy Council; and in local, manorial, ecclesiastical, and mercantile courts. Select charters of trading companies, borough customs, and records of public works show the development of business enterprise and local government. Professional literature, early treatises, formularies, judges' notebooks, and lecturers' readings on statutes show the development of the legal profession, early legal education, the inns of court, and their teaching methods. The publication of English legal materials is an unfinished project! The Selden Society edits, translates, and publishes one volume each year which often contains materials appearing for the first time in print. The contents of each volume are explained and discussed in its introduction; and these introductions therefore represent much of the research and scholarship that has been devoted over the past hundred years to the development of the common law and its institutions.
