VOLUME IV ONLY printed on demand (approx. 14 weeks from date of order to ship date) $280.* Reprint of Vol. IV of the Vulgate edition, with a new detailed introduction that addresses the history, content and significance of The Year Books, and tables that list all justices and sergeants, as well as calendar years of law terms. The new material includes references to Seipp's Index and Paraphrase of Printed Year Book Reports 1268-1535, which is based on the Vulgate edition reprinted here. A powerful research tool, Seipp's Index and Paraphrase of Printed Year Book Reports, 1268-1535 is a free online database of all printed Year Book reports that indexes and summarizes almost all of the cases in this edition. It also guides the reader to later and prior proceedings of individual cases and to all case references in abridgments and other sources. It is difficult to overestimate the importance of The Year Books. As Marvin put it in his Legal Bibliography (1847), these were the "venerable books" from which Littleton, Hobart, Hale and Coke drew "so much valuable ore, melting it into ingots and refining and sending it abroad as the correct coin of the common law" (756). As a series of notes on debates and points of pleadings they are primary sources for our knowledge of medieval common law. The origin of The Year Books is unknown. Maitland believed that the earliest volumes were notes taken by law students in court copied for the use of pleaders in later cases. Holdsworth maintained that The Year Books, like other law reports, were records of cases made by lawyers for their own private use with no thought toward subsequent publication. Though it is not known when the first volumes were compiled, it is clear that the earliest cases date from 1268; the printed series continues to 1535. The first Year Books were printed in 1481-1482 by William de Machlinia. The Vulgate edition was published between 1678 and 1680; it remains the standard edition.The set comprises:Vol. I.: Edward II 1307-1327Vol. II.: 1-10 Edward III 1327-1337Vol. III.: 17-39 Edward III 1343-1366Vol. IV.: 40-50 Edward III 1366-1377Vol. V.: Liber Assissarum 1327-1377Vol. VI.: 1-14 Henry IV and 1-9 Henry V 1399-1422Vol. VII.: 1-20 Henry VI 1422-1442Vol. VIII.: 21-39 Henry VI 1442-1461Vol. IX.: 1-22 Edward IV 1461-1483Vol. X.: Long Quinto, 5 Edward IV 1465-1466Vol. XI.: Edward V, Richard III, Henry VII and Henry VIII 1483-1535(Each volume includes a new introduction.)
