"An Excellent Repertory Or Table for the Year Books" With a New Introduction and Table of Corrections by David J. Seipp Brooke [Brook], Robert. La Graunde Abridgement, Collect & Escrie per le Iudge Tresreverend Syr Robert Brooke Chivalier, Nadgairs Chiefe Iustice del Common Banke. [And] La Secounde Part du Graunde Abridgement. Originally published: [London]: In Aedibus Richardi Tottelli, 1573. (iii-xvi new introduction and table), [iv], 360 ff.; [i], 2-338 ff. Reprinted 2015 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. With a New Introduction and Table of Corrections by David J. Seipp, Professor of Law, Boston University. ISBN-13: 9781584779711. ISBN-10: 1584779713. Two volumes (10" x 14"). Hardcover. New. $395. * Reprint of first edition, with a new introduction and table of corrections of marginal citations by David J. Seipp. There are over 21,000 entries in Brooke's Abridgement. In the Table of Corrections of Marginal Citations Professor Seipp identifies and corrects numerous mistakes in reign, year, or folio created in error by Tottell's type-setters or Brooke's pen. Sir Robert Brooke [d.1558] was renowned for his great learning and probity as a judge. His Abridgement is based on Fitzherbert's Abridgement, but it contains much new material. In all, Brooke abridged nearly 21,000 cases and digested them alphabetically under 404 headings. It abridges fully the Year Books of Henry VII and Henry VIII. Brooke proceeded with great care and accuracy, and is believed to have had access to the original records of the Year Books. Coke calls the Abridgement "a worthy and painful work and an excellent repertory or table for the Year Books of the Law" (cited in Marvin's Legal Bibliography 151-152). Seller Inventory # 54764

About this Item: London, In aedibus Richardi Tottell Duodecimo die Octobris., 1576. Second Edition. Two Volumes in one [complete]. Quarto. [3 of 4], 351, [1], 328 leaves. Titlepage and 1 page of Tabula of Volume I missing. Hardcover / 17th century boards with 5 raised bands. The binding in very poor condition but still holding. The titlepage and first leaf of the Tabula missing. Name of preowner on remaining page of Tabula. First seven leaves with some fraying. Titlepage of second Volume is an improvised titlepage with only the centre-piece of the original woodcut - titlepage mounted on a blank page. The bookblock overall in very good condition. Some very interesting, contemporary 16th or 17th century annotations to the outer margins of some pages. Perfect candidate for a nice rebinding project. One of the most important legal compendium of the 16th and 17th century. BROKE or BROOKE, Sir ROBERT (d. 1558), speaker of the House of Commons and chief justice of the common pleas, was the son of Thomas Broke of Claverley, Shropshire, by his wife Margaret, daughter of Hugh Grosvenor of Farmcote Hall in the same county. He was admitted B.A. at Oxford 8 July 1521 (Oxf. Univ. Reg. ed. Boase, i. 111). He afterwards studied at the Middle Temple, where in 1542 he was elected autumn reader, and in Lent 1551 double reader. He held successively the offices of common serjeant and recorder of London (being appointed to the latter office in 1545), and represented the city in several parliaments. On 17 Oct. 1552 he was made a serjeant-at-law. On 2 April 1554, while still recorder, he was chosen speaker of the House of Commons. The second parliament of Queen Mary, over which he was elected to preside, was declared in the opening speech of the chancellor (Bishop Gardiner) to be called 'for the corroboration of true religion, and touching the queen's highness's most noble marriage.' Broke was 'a zealous catholic,' and his conduct as speaker gave great satisfaction to the queen. He was appointed chief justice of the common pleas on 8 Oct. 1554 (Wood erroneously gives the date as 1553), and on 27 Jan. following was knighted by King Philip. On 26 Feb. 1556-7 he sat in the court which was appointed to try Charles, lord Stourton, for the murder of the Hartgills, and it is mentioned in Machyn's 'Diary' that, the prisoner having obstinately refused to plead, the lord chief justice at last rose and threatened him with the punishment of being pressed to death, upon which he pleaded guilty. Broke died on 6 Sept. 1558 while on a visit to his friends, at Claverley, his native place, and is buried in the chancel of the parish church there. In the 'Gentleman's Magazine' (xcii. pt. ii. 490) is a description of his monument at Claverley, with a copy of the inscription, which states that he was twice married, and had seventeen children. According to Wood he left to his descendants 'a fair estate at Madeley in Shropshire, and one or two places in Suffolk.' The mention of Suffolk, however, is probably a mistake ; Wood was apparently thinking of the Broke family of Nacton, who derived their descent from Sir Richard Broke [q. v.] The same writer informs us that Sir Robert Broke, by his will proved 12 Oct. 1558, made several bequests to the church and poor of Putney. Broke was held in great respect as a learned and upright judge, and also obtained a high reputation as a legal writer. The following is a list of his works, none of which seem to have been published during the author's lifetime : 1. 'La Graunde Abridgement,' 1568. This is an abstract of the year-books down to the writer's own time, and is principally based on the work by Fitzherbert bearing the same title. Broke's treatise, however, is considered superior in lucidity of arrangement to that of Fitzherbert, and contains also some valuable original matter. Sir E. Coke and other eminent legal authorities have praised it highly. Further editions were published in 1570, 1573, 1576, and 1586. A selection from the 'Abridgement,' comprising the more recent cases which Broke had added to Fitzherbert'. Seller Inventory # 100252AB

Later he was Speaker of the House of Commons and Chief Justice of the Common Pleas court. Broke had a significant role in parliament promoting Henry's agenda. His grand Abridgement digested 21,000 Year Book cases and notes. Refs: Beale, Bibliography of Early English Law Books R473, R476; STC 3829. Sowerby, Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson, 1777. "Broke's activity in Parliament was not so much a diversion from his career in the courts as an extension of it. If, like his professional colleagues in both Houses, he must have viewed their proceedings chiefly from the standpoint of a practising lawyer, his experiences as a Member could not but affect his work as advocate and judge. Just as the leading case of Bulkeley v Rhys Thomas (1555) over an election return from Anglesey could lead him to cite his own electoral experience in refuting the argument that a return 'by the greater number' of electors was invalid without a statement of the numbers involved, so his interpretative opinions on statutes must have gained from his part in the making of so many of them: one might even say that a judge who construed the minds of the makers of the statute out of mere necessity to avoid a mischief' had his feet on the floor of the Tudor House of Commons. Even Broke's Abridgement, designed to present, as its model, Fitzherbert's, had earlier done, a 'classified statement of the law as it then existed', bore the imprint of its compiler's interests both within and outside the legislature: it contains a heading 'London', includes a good many cases which Broke himself either argued or judged, and makes frequent allusion to Parliament. Published a quarter-of-a-century after Broke's death, the work had an immediate success, as did the 'Novel cases' of the reigns of Henry VIII, Edward VI and Mary which Richard Bellewe extracted from it and produced as a separate volume in 1578." - Broke, Robert; The History of Parliament: the House of Commons 1509-1558, Helen Miller; ed.

About this Item: In aedibus Richardi Tottell, vicesimo quinto Ianuarij (Richard Tottell), London, 1573. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Two volumes, folio (330 x 235mm). [4], 360ff.; 2-338ff. Signatures: (vol. 1) *(4), A-YY(8); (vol. 2) A-SS(8), TT(10). Titles within grand woodcut architective and figurative compartments, under it "R.T." Vol. 2 has title: . La secounde part du graund abridgement collect & escrie per le Iudge tresreuerend Syr Robert Brooke. Colophon reads: "Imprynted at London in Fletestrete within Temple barre, at the signe of the hande and starre, by Richard Tottyl. the XXV. day of January. Anno domini. 1573." Blackletter work written in Law French. Woodcut initials and head- and tail-pieces throughout. 20th-century cloth with red and black leather labels. Early ownership inscription on the title partially trimmed away. 18th century ownership associations as J. Henry Pont in 1734 on the first title and an illegible name in a heavily stylized secretarial hand from an earlier owner in the central compartment of both volumes, likely "Anthony Hudde" that appears on one of the leaves of the table. New York Bar Association stamps on title-pages; some light toning, some wear to the first few leaves of the first volume, otherwise a good set. STC 3827 Early edition Brooke’s "Graunde abridgement," a major Elizabethan authority on English Law, which Richard Tottell published in 1573. Brooke was appointed Chief Justice of Common Pleas four years before his death in 1554. His magnum opus was these abridgments, which provided access to the centuries of "Year Book" cases and largely inaccessible medieval legal sources. His task was to digest, classify, and restate over 21,000 decisions alphabetically, ending up with 404 headings. Brooke was no ordinary common lawyer and his sentiments undoubtedly reflected those of the wider legal community. Of interest, he added a number of case reports and statutes from his own observations. Brooke modeled his work after the oft-reprinted 1514 treatise of the same name by Anthony Fitzherbert (1470-1538), although it is frequently said Brooke was more ambitious, and accurate, in his efforts. This title and Brooke’s work appeared at least twice before in 1568 and 1570 (See Lowndes p. 266), but this 1573 seems to be Tottell’s first printing of Brooke’s abridgment. And Tottell printed both Brooke’s and Fitzhebert’s abridgments through his press at nearly the same time. It is known though that three years after this edition, the "graunde abridgement" of Brooke was reprinted by Tottell in 1576 and again in 1586 and Fitzhebert’s was completed first in 1565 and again in 1577.

About this Item: 1586. Preferred Edition of "An Excellent Repertory or Table for the Year Books" Brooke, Sir Robert [?-1558]. La Graunde Abridgement, Collecte & Escrie per le Iudge Tresreverend Syr Robert Brooke Chivaler, Nadgairs Chiefe Iustice del Common Banke. [London]: In Aedibus Richardi Tottelli, 1586.

A handsome copy. $1,750. * Third edition. Sir Robert Brooke was renowned for his great learning and probity as a judge. His Abridgement is based on Fitzherbert's Abridgement, but it contains much new material. In all, Brooke abridged nearly 21,000 cases and digested them alphabetically under 404 headings. It abridges fully the Year Books of Henry VII and Henry VIII. Brooke proceeded with great care and accuracy, and is believed to have had access to the original records of the Year Books. Coke calls the Abridgement "a worthy and painful work and an excellent repertory or table for the Year Books of the Law." This edition is superior to earlier printings, in which abbreviations are frequently unintelligible. A fair number of important early American lawyers had copies of this title, and it remained a reference into the nineteenth century. Thomas Jefferson, to cite on example, had a copy of the present edition. Coke cited in Marvin, Legal Bibliography 151-52. Sowerby, Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson 1777.

First published between 1514-1517, Fitzherbert's Graunde abridgement was an attempt to systematically arrange centuries of medieval English common law. Fitzherbert abridged 13485 of the most significant case-notes taken from Year Books (Liber Assisarum) and from other sources into 263 titles. (DNB, p. 169) Coke describes it as 'painfully and elaborately collected.' Fitzherbert's work served as a foundational work for subsequent efforts of Sir Robert Brooke and others. By helping to codify common law, Fitzherbert's work helped establish limitations to the royal prerogative and the roots of commonly held rights. Thomas Jefferson owned a 1577 copy. (Sowerby, Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson 1776) This is an oversized or heavy book, that requires additional postage for international delivery outside the US.
