The Legitimacy Of Amicia, Daughter Of Hugh Cyveliok Earl of Chester.
1679 - Interesting for Its Discussion of Early Common-Law Authorities on Marriage Mainwaring, Sir Thomas [1623-1689]. The Legitimacy Of Amicia, Daughter Of Hugh Cyveliok Earl Of Chester, Clearly Proved. With Full Answers to All Objections that Have at Any Time been Made Against the Same. London: Printed for Sam. Lowndes, 1679. [x], 171, [1] pp. Octavo (6-1/2" x 4"). Contemporary speckled calf, blind rules to boards, raised bands to spine, marbled edges. Moderate rubbing to extremities, boards beginning to separate, but secured by cords. Title page printed in red and black. Moderate toning to text, small piece excised from rear endleaf, internally clean. * Only edition. A sequel to the author's A Defence of Amicia. The 8-page preface gives a useful account of the endless pamphlet-war that following the publication of Defence in 1673, including an account of the controversy itself and the publications of Mainwaring's opponent, Peter Leicester. Amicia, the author's grandmother, was the wife of Ralph Mainwaring. Leicester, another descendant of Amicia, claimed that she was a bastard. This tract, like the others, is of legal interest for its discussion of the early common law authorities on marriage. Both authors had been students at Gray's Inn. The issue was eventually decided in Mainwaring's favor. OCLC locates 13 copies in North America, 1 in a law library (Ohio State). English Short-Title Catalogue R21678. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
