"Sir Francis Moore was one of the most eminent lawyers of his time; and his Reports...have always enjoyed a reputation for accuracy. They were well known and were cited in MS. many years before their publication; and, in coming before the profession, had the advantage of an editor whose capacity for his office was quickened into zeal by filial respect. Sir Geoffrey Palmer, an eminent lawyer of the Restoration, and by whom they were published, was a son-in-law of Moore.": Wallace, The Reporters 122, 126. English Short-Title Catalogue R32287.
