The Interpreter was considered to be the best lawdictionary until Jacob's, and still is, used by scholars ofearly English legal texts. When a joint committee of Lordsand Councillors reviewed the work, the ensuing controversynearly halted the affairs of government. Moreover, TheInterpreter contained a quotation that criticizedLittleton's scholarship, which alienated and enraged SirEdward Coke. It comes as no surprise that he wasinstrumental in the book's suppression and in Cowell'spersecution.Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S. Hein & Co., Inc.
