Authoritative biographies of 1,589 chancellors, masters of the rolls, and judges of the courts are provided for each reign, from the time of the Norman Conquest through the reign of Queen Victoria, 1066-1864. Based on original sources, it is an important reference work for legal historians. Considered "the standard authority" in its field by J.C. Robertson in the Law Times of Sept. 24, 1870, (see Dictionary of National Biography VII:491-492), it is frequently cited by Holdsworth in A History of English Law. Foss was a founder and later president of the Incorporated Law Society. A prolific magazine contributor during his professional practice, he dedicated himself during his retirement to a study of the history of the legal profession, and lent various materials from his collection to Lord Campbell for Lives of the Chancellors. In 1843 he published The Grandeur of the Law and then went on to write The Judges over a sixteen year period. "A" rated in the American Association of Law Schools, Law Books Recommended for Librarians. Bookseller Inventory # 36285
