About this Item

ISBN-13: 9781584779773. ISBN-10: 1584779772. "The Megatherium of the Older Abridgments" Viner, Charles. A General Abridgment of Law and Equity: Alphabetically Digested Under Proper Titles, with Notes and References to the Whole. Originally published: Aldershot: Printed for the Author, 1742-1753. 23 volumes. Hardcover folio (9" x 14") [with] one searchable DVD. Reprinted 2009, 2014 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 9781584779773. ISBN-10: 1584779772. Hardcover. New. $2,995. * Reprint of the First edition. Descended from Rolle's Abridgment, Viner's Magnum Opus marks the end of an era in English legal bibliography. Originally intended as a continuation of D'Anver's abridgment, which ends at "Factor," Viner's work went on to become the longest and most detailed work of its kind. According to Winfield, "[i]t is the megatherium of the older abridgments.For several years we have used Viner for the purpose of getting all available references to all existing cases on three or four branches of the law, and we have found his book very useful." Marvin adds that "it is a vast Index of the law" that "often rewards the labour when all other resources have failed." In addition to the Abridgment, Viner [1678-1756] contributed much for the study of English law through his posthumous establishment of the Vinerian chair and Vinerian scholarships. The first holder of the Vinerian Chair was Sir William Blackstone. During his tenure he delivered the lectures that formed the basis of his Commentaries on the Laws of England. Winfield, The Chief Sources of English Legal History 244-45. Please inquire with reference to individual volumes if desired. Bookseller Inventory # 54773
