De Laudibus Legum Angliæ. Written originally in Latin by Sir John Fortescue Lord Chief Justice, and after Lord Chancellor to King Henry VI. Translated into English, illustrated with the notes of Mr. Selden.
London In the Savoy 1741 - 2 parts in one volume, folio, pp;[4],ii,36;[2],III,[1],42, [2]; [4],lxiv,130,[14], engaved frontispiece, the second [Latin] section bound at the beginning in this copy and dated 1737, bound in contemporary calf, rubbed, upper board detached, internally fine, a very good copy for rebacking, SECOND EDITION THUS, this copy with Latin followed by English text of Gregor, though most copies have the English first. Perhaps the original owner -Thomas Townsend, M.P. preferred it that way. There were several printings of Fortescue's legal classic of the Fifteenth Century with Selden's notes, but this is considered to be the best.
