1728. The Book that Established the Field of Equity Jurisprudence Francis, Richard [fl. 1719-1728]. Maxims of Equity, Collected From, And Proved by Cases, Out of the Books of the Best Authority, In the High Court of Chancery. To Which is Added the Case of the Earl of Coventry, Concerning the Defective Execution of Powers Latlky Adjudged in the High Court of Chancery. [London]: Printed by E. and R. Nutt, and R. Gosling, 1728. [x], 72, [12], [2], 20 pp. Folio (12" x 8"). Recent period-style calf, blind rules to boards, raised bands and lettering piece to spine. Moderate toning and occasional light foxing to text, internally clean. * Second edition, a reissue of the first edition (1727) with an altered titlepage and a preliminary advertisement leaf. This was the first textbook on equity published since St. Germain's Doctor and Student (1523). It is generally considered to be the book that founded the field of equity jurisprudence. Francis outlines fourteen maxims, such as "Equality is Equity" and "Equity suffers not a right to be without a remedy." Each maxim is followed by a brief summary of cases that illustrate its application. As Roscoe Pound observed, Francis created a precursor to the casebook: "his maxims for the most part are independent attempts to state principles derived from the study of cases.": Pound, "On Certain Maxims of Equity" in Cambridge Legal Essays 261-262.
