A nice copy in a handsome binding. $1,250. * Only edition. This is the published version of a lecture on the limitation of actions presented at the Middle Temple. As Holdsworth notes, these presentations were an important part of a law student's education. They usually addressed recent statutes, narrow topics or complicated legal points. Brooke was renowned for his great learning as a scholar and his probity as a judge. His great achievement was La Graunde Abridgement (1st ed. 1573), an updated and expanded version of Fitzherbert's Abridgement (1st ed. 1516). Holdsworth, A History of English Law V:393.
