About this Item

The first published treatise dedicated to Irish law, here in its authoritative, expanded and updated edition. The author was Chief Baron of the Irish Exchequer at the time of the work's first publication in 1638, and later became Lord Chancellor of Ireland; the updated statutes, index, and table of precedents were compiled and supplied by Irish barrister Michael Travers, whose => widow Margaret wrote the dedication and apparently shepherded the book through publication after Travers's death. Details include two extremely specific tables of measurements and prices for white, wheat, and household breads. The second book, "containing the description and method of holding the general sessions of the Justices of the Peace," has a separate title-page, with the same publication information; the final section, "Precedents of Committals, Summonses, Convictions, and Warrants, for Several Offences within the cognizance of Justices of the Peace for Ireland" also has a separate title-page, but continuous pagination with the previous section. Provenance: Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Thomas Cobbe of Newbridge, County Dublin, with "Moriens cano" motto; title-page with Cobbe's inked ownership inscription in upper outer corner. 4to (26.8 cm, 10.5"). [2], xiv, 586, 292 pp.; 2 tables. ESTC T117728. Contemporary calf, spine with raised bands and recent gilt-stamped leather title-label; corners and spine extremities unobtrusively refurbished.

Printing license, title-page, and a few others creased; a few corners dog-eared => A clean, solid copy of an important reference work for Irish statutes and legal practices.
