Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0854230084, Hardcover)

Excerpt from the Preface: This book is a study of diplomatic, of institutions and of law in England during the five reigns between 1066 and 1189, with the royal writs as focus. It falls into three parts. In the first (introductory) part the historical background is outlined with special reference to the law courts and their forms of process. The second part deals with the central theme of the book: the English royal writs as they led up to the classic writs of the common law. In the third (concluding) part a few general problems of the earliest history of the common law are examined and, of course, a few final considerations offered.
