Light toning to interior, faint dampstaining to lower margins of preliminaries, following five leaves and a few more leaves at rear of text, underlining and annotations throughout text in early hand. * First edition. Coke's Reports are not reports in the conventional sense; they are highly detailed anthologies of precedents organized by topic. Taken together, it forms the most extensive and detailed treatment of common law pleading that had yet appeared. A work of immense authority, it was often cited as The Reports, there being no need to mention the author's name. The annotations in this copy, probably those of a student or practitioner, indicate careful study. Several passages are underlined, there are many brief notes in the margins and several long footnotes keyed to the text. Some of these are case references or glosses; most are interpretive. As a group, the annotations offer valuable insight into a contemporary reader's engagement with this book. English Short-Title Catalogue S4190.
