As noted by Holdsworth, pleading was a topic "of the great and growing importance" during the seventeenth century. This importance is evident in the large number of pleading manuals issued at this time. First published in 1691, the anonymous Regula Placitandi was one of the best works of its kind. It formed the basis of several subsequent manuals. Holdsworth, A History of English Law VI:600. English Short-Title Catalogue R232089.
