MEN OF COURT 1440 TO 1550 A PROSOPOGRAPHY OF THE INNS OF COURT AND CHANCERY AND THE COURTS OF LAW
Item #: 72564
Published: London; Selden Society; Reprinted in 2012.
This monumental work in two very large volumes is a bio-graphical dictionary of every named person connected with the law: all know members of the inns of court and chancery (which included many non-lawyers), and all the attorneys and officers of the central courts. A veritable Who's Who in the Law during this important transitional period, with well over 10,000 entries identifying as far as possible each individual, and with information relating to his social position, family, local roots, armorial bearings, and portraits; and going back before 1440 or after 1550 where a life extended beyond the qualifying period. Much of the information, never before published, has been gleaned from suits for dues brought by the inns against their members, supplemented from the inns' own records, the plea rolls and other sources.
