Coke [1552-1643] was considered to be the greatest legalpractitioner of his day. Written between 1572 and 1616, TheReports aren't reports in the conventional sense, but highlydetailed anthologies of precedents organized according tothe cases they consider. In each instance Coke assembled alarge body of cases, outlined their arguments, and explainedthe reasons for the judgment, using it as a basis for astatement of general principles. They are, in effect, aa series of treatises on the points of law adjudged, and notmerely notes for citation. Taken together, The Reports formthe most extensive and detailed treatment of Common Lawpleading that had yet appeared. The work was often cited asThe Reports, as everyone knew its author.Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S. Hein & Co., Inc.
