The first two were originally published in 1659, the third in 1684. Little is known about the author, though he may have been a barrister. According to the editor, "[t]he principal value of the ensuing fugitive pieces consists in the curious and valuable information, both legal and historical, which they contain; and which, although mixed up with much extraneous and tedious matter, will not, on that account, be unacceptable to the few individuals who take an interest in our national history.": Preface [iii]. Robert Maxtone Graham was a notable Scottish book collector. OCLC locates 10 in North America, 5 in law libraries (Harvard, Library of congress, LA County, University of Pennsylvania, University of Virginia). According to Sweet & Maxwell, only 40 copies of this book were printed. See A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 5:93. Bookseller Inventory # 43301
