Moore [1842-1907] argues that "the theory of the prima facie title of the Crown is a mere theory of abstract law, a theory of law `taken for granted,' based upon an untrue assumption of a state of facts which might possibly have existed, but which is really not in accordance with the true state of the facts relating to the matter, so far as they can at present be ascertained": Introduction. Also included in the contents of this work: Sir Matthew Hale, Narrative Legall and Historicall Touchinge the Customes; Robert Gream Hall, Essay on the Rights of the Crown and the Privileges of the Subject in the Sea-shores of the Realm. Reprint of the third edition.
