THE GREATEST WORK IN LEGAL LITERATURE.
KING'S BENCH SERIES now commencing.
THE ENGLISH REPORTS,
1378 to 1865.
FULL VERBATIM REPRINT ANNOTATED.
CONSULTATIVE COMMITTEE :
[Great Britain ;
FOLLOWING on the complete re-issue in 71 volumes of the House of Lords, Privy Council, Chancery, Rolls Court and Vice-Chancellors Reports, the KING'S BENCH SERIES is now in course of publication, and may be subscribed for separately.
This series is perhaps the most important of all the reports prior to 1865. A complete set of the originals from Bellewe, 1378-1400, down to and including Best and Smith, 1861-1866, with all the collateral reporters, extends to no fewer than 250 volumes of all sizes and styles of printing. These are very costly, and would almost require a separate room for their accommodation. Subscribers will have the privilege of possessing a complete annotated reprint of all of these invaluable reports in about 40 uniform volumes in a modern and much more legible style of type, at a cost of 30s. per volume.
The reports will be reprinted in strictly chronological order, and as the original pagination and machinery of reference will be maintained, references from text-books and digests will be found even more easily than in the originals.
HOUSE OF OF LORDS (1694 to 1866), complete in 11 vols. royal 8vo. Price net, half bound, £22.
PRIVY COUNCIL (including Indian Appeals) (1809 to 1872), complete in 9 vols. Price net, half bound, £13:10s. CHANCERY (including Collateral Reports) (1557 to 1866), complete in 27 vols. Price net, half bound, £40: 10s. ROLLS COURT (1829 to 1866), complete in 8 vols. Price net, half bound,
