A Scarce Chancery Reporter Overlooked by Wallace Finch, Heneage [1620-1682]. Reports of Cases Decreed in the High Court of Chancery, During the Time Heneage Finch, Afterwards Earl of Nottingham, Was Lord Chancellor. In Many of Which Decrees he was Assisted by Some of the Judges of the Common Law. All which Cases are Truly Stated upon the Pleadings, And the Arguments on Each Side Clearly Reported; Together with the Opinions of Those Judges, Who Sate as Assistants to the Chancellor Before he Pronounced his Decrees. To Which are Added Marginal Notes, Shewing Where Those Decrees are Founded on the Civil Law, And Agree Therewith. None of These Cases ever Printed Before, And All of them Carefully Collected by a Gentleman who Attended the Said Court, And was Himself of Counsel in the Said Cases. With Proper Tables; One of the Names of the Cases, The Other of the Principal Matters Therein Contained. [London]: Printed by E. and R. Nutt, and R. Gosling, 1735.
