This classic edition of Glanvill, by the great medievalist G.D.G.Hall, has now been reissued by Oxford University Press.

This treatise is undoubtedly one of the best-known and most important works of medieval English law. Its itemization and commentary upon writs and the procedure connected with them provides invaluable information on legal practice in the 12th century, but the treatise has far more than this to offer.

It is a work of original analysis, covering such significant topics as dowry, debt and inheritance, and allowing us a unique insight into the medieval legal mind.
