BLACKSTONE, Sir William [1723-1780].
Commentaries On The Laws Of England.
Oxford: Printed At The Clarendon Press, 1770-69..
4 Volumes. 4to. pp. 2 p.l., ii, [6], 485; 4 p.l., 520, xix; 4 p.l., 455, [1]blank, xxvii; 4 p.l., 436, vii, [1]blank, [39]index. 2 engraved plates (1 folding) in Vol. II. contemporary calf, rebacked & recornered, preserving spine labels & marbled endleaves (corners worn, foxing to last few leaves in Vol. IV). book labels of the Earl of Sefton. Fourth Edition of Vols. I-III; First Edition of Vol. I. Blackstone's Commentaries, based on his lectures given at Oxford beginning in 1753, constitute the first attempt since Bracton to provide a coherent account of English law as a whole. "Blackstone inaugurated university instruction in English law.His great achievement.was his reduction to lucid and systematic statement of that disordered bulk of laws which had gradually accumulated since the days of Bracton. Although Blackstone lacked the originality and force of some of his predecessors in English legal literature, such as Bracton, Coke and Hale, his Commentaries, written in a style at once dignified, urbane and clear, are the most complete survey of the English legal system ever composed by a single hand." (H.D.Hazeltine, Encyc. of Social Sciences) Sweet & Maxwell I 27.8. cfMarke p. 34. cfPrinting and the Mind of Man 21. cfGrolier, English 100, 52. cfRothschild 407.

Examen De La Procédure Criminelle Instruite À Saint-Leu, À Pointoise, Et Devant La Cour Royale De Paris, Sur Les Causes Et Les Circonstances De La Mort De S.A.R. Le Duc De Bourbon, Prince De Condé.
Paris: Plassan Et Cie., 1832..
8vo. pp. 2 p.l., 393, [2]table. with half-title. 2 folding aquatint plans. contemporary quarter calf (joints cracked, ink deletion on title). from the library of noted bibliophile Alexander William Crawford Lindsay, twenty-fifth Earl of Crawford and eighth Earl of Balcarres [1812-1880] with 'Bibliotheca Lindesiana' bookplate. First Edition. Louis Henri Joseph, Duc De Bourbon and the last Prince de Condé [1756-1830] was found on August 30, 1830, hanging by his neck from the fastening on his window in the château Saint-Leu. The year before his death he had drawn up a will naming the duc d'Aumale as his heir, and making considerable bequests to his mistress, the barronne de Feuchères. Murder was suspected, and the princes de Rohan, who were relatives of the deceased, instituted proceedings to dispute the will. This account of the judicial investigation into the Prince's death was prepared by the lawyers acting for the baronne de Feuchères to counter a prejudicial publication issued by the princes de Rohan one month before the hearings took place. The judicial opinion was that the Prince had committed suicide. The NUC entry calls for a frontispiece portrait, not present here; there is no evidence of one ever having been removed.
