Reports of Cases in Bankruptcy, Decided by The Lord Chancellor Brougham, The Vice-Chancellor Sir Lancelot Shadwell, and The Court of Review.
Henry Butterworth. Hardcover. London, 1835. Large 8vo, recently rebacked contemporary calf, 428, lxxxiii, [32] pp. A scarce collection by the scholar and reformer Basil Montagu, one of many different volumes of case studies on bankruptcy law that he published. "Montagu's writings on bankruptcy date from his four-volume Digest of Bankruptcy Laws, compiled between 1805 and 1807. On the strength of this work, which ran into several editions, Lord Erskine appointed him a commissioner in bankruptcy in 1806. For the next twenty-five years Montagu dedicated himself to the reform of bankruptcy administration. During this period he published numerous books and pamphlets on the subject. In 1825, when a major bankruptcy reform was being debated in parliament, Montagu attacked the delay and expense involved in the existing bankruptcy procedure in his timely Inquires Respecting the Courts of Commissioners of Bankrupts, and Lord Chancellor's Court. In July of the same year he suggested reforms of the system before the chancery commission. Although Montagu's Inquires contained few original suggestions, it did provide a handy collection of previous proposals for reform." - Oxford DNB. Margins of first few leaves badly foxed, old library sticker to spine, else nearly fine with a sound recently rebacked binding and bright contents. Very good condition overall. OCLC 4786035 . Very Good. 1835. First Edition.
