With extensive notes in English, a life of Ruggle (1575-1622), commentary explaining the jokes and an extensiveglossary of legal terms. Main text in Latin. Ruggles'classic cerbic satire of the English bench and bar waswritten in Latin and first performed in 1615. Designed toredicule the language of the common law and the dullness oflawyers, the play is based on events relating to a legaldispute between the vice-chancellor of Cambridge Universityand the major of Cambridge, Francis Brakin. As one wouldexpect, it incensed the legal community.Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S. Hein & Co., Inc.
