Description:

Folio (28.5 x 18 cm). [10], 321pp., 1-85 pp. (Registrum Judiciale). Collation: [par.](4), [2 par.] (6), A-FFF(6), GGG(4), HHH-YYY(6). Title within ornamental woodcut border with boughs of fruit. Two thirteen-line woodcut initials E of an enthroned Elizabeth I at beginning of part I (A1r) and for the Judicial Register (3HC). Minor five-line woodcut initials throughout. Edited by William Rastell. Text in Latin. Printed marginalia. 20th-century cloth with red and black lettering labels, all edges red, housed in a modern clamshell case; some slight foxing and marginal toning or tears as expected, but a sound copy. New York Bar Association stamp and accession marks on title leaf. This title found in the usual institutional law libraries but not common elsewhere. The first edition by William Rastell was printed in 1531 as collection of judicial writs and pleadings used for beginning or carrying on legal proceedings. The printing of this text was especially important as the first authoritative collection of writs in English Common Law; all which concerned workers in a functioning early modern English society. The earliest manuscript of this title dates to 1227, yet there does not seem to be any official register of writs for the medieval period. Four editions were subsequently printed of the "Registrum Omnium Brevium;" as in 1553, 1595 (here), 1634 and 1687. Importantly, this third edition was the work of a woman printer, the widow of Charles Yetsweirt. Jane Yetsweirt, at the behest of her husband, printed major works on law before remarrying and retiring from the business in 1597. This "Registrum" was one of her last major works and is a substantial reprinting of the first edition. Supremely important Elizabethan work on common law, scarcely found.
