"The New Instructor Clericalis, stating the Authority, Jurisdiction, and Practice of the Court of King's Bench"

£230.00

Product description

This is the 1785 edition of the text by legal writer John Impey (?-1829). This book, which was first published in 1782 and reached a tenth edition in 1823, was one of the first to detail a systematic account of the practice of the common law courts.

John Impey was a lawyer and writer who was admitted to the Middle Temple on 4th November 1771. He remained a member for nearly sixty years, and practised law at 3 Inner Temple Lane. He was for a long time one of the attorneys of the sheriff's court of London and Middlesex.

Condition: the boards of this leather-bound book show some fairly heavy marking, denting, and rubbing. Part of the leather covering on the spine has come off (see photo). There is a large tear on the back cover of the book where the leather has started to peel off the board. The book's fore-edge has some moderate marking as well. The inside of the front cover has a large dent at the bottom, and this is also apparent on the ffep and the early pages of the book (see photo). The ffep and the title page both have ink inscriptions, and the interior pages have numerous annotations. Then interior pages also have some marking and staining throughout, and some of the text has faded slightly, but the book is legible. The binding is fairly strong as well.
