Excerpt from Reeves' History of the English Law, From the Time of the Romans to the End of the Reign of Elizabeth, Vol. 1 of 5: With Numerous Notes, and an Introductory Dissertation on the Nature and Use of Legal History, the Rise and Progress of Our Laws, and the Influence of the Roman Law in the Formation of Our Own; From the Time of the Romans to the End of the Reign of John Sir Matthew Hale, as a writer upon English law, pos sesses a reputation which can neither be increased nor diminished by anything that may be said of his History. We may therefore eely observe that it is only an im peifect Sketch, containing nothing very important nor very new. What seemed most to be expected, namely, an account of the changes made in the rules and maxims of the law, is very lightly touched (a). In Short, the early period to which this work is confined, and the cursory way in which that period is treated, scarcely serve to give a taste of what a history of the law might be.
