Small 4to (180 x 132mm). Title within ornamental border, ornamental initials. 20th-century calf, spine lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers; (faint dampstaining at front, slightly browned). Ink stamps on title of Thomas Falconer, Esq., Lincoln's Inn and J.B. Martin. First Edition. Manwood was a barrister of Lincoln's Inn, gamekeeper of Waltham Forest, and Justice in Eyre of the New Forest under Elizabeth I of England. Manwood's first essay on forest law entitled A Brefe Collection of the Lawes of the Forrest was circulated privately in 1592. It was revised, enlarged, and published by Thomas Wight and Bonham Norton in 1598 as A Treatise and Discourse of the Lawes of the Forrest. This underwent numerous subsequent editions, most notably in that of 1615 by the Societie of Stationers, a version which included material from the Brefe Collection which was not included in the 1598 version. Manwood's book remains a standard reference on forest law through the mid-1900s. STC 17291. Bookseller Inventory # 6554
