"Like Lambard, Tothill, and a few similar works, this volume is one which those great cases that occur from time to time, and stimulate inquiry into the very foundations of legal science, will occasionally call forth, and it ought, therefore, to be in every public law library. (...) There is a picturesqueness and dramatic interest about them, especially as seen by the half lights in which sitting so far off, we...necessarily view them, that makes them quite entertaining, and, indeed an exhibition of Elizabethan habits, manners, and peculiarities." (Wallace). The period covered by Choyce Cases is 1557-1606. Counting both issues, OCLC locates 10 copies in North American law libraries (Columbia, Georgetown, Harvard, Jenkins, Library of Congress, Northwestern, University of Minnesota, University of Pennsylvania, US Supreme Court, Yale).
