One of the earliest books on the topic, this brief treatise was originally published in 1670 under Blount's name with a slightly different title. Blount was a member of the Inner Temple. Prohibited to practice at the Bar because he was a Catholic, and blessed with a large private income, Blount turned to legal scholarship, historical studies and lexicography. Both editions are scarce. OCLC locates 12 copies of the 1676 edition in North America, 10 in law libraries. English Short-Title Catalogue R4175.
