Sir William Searle Holdsworth was professor of constitutional law at University College, London (1903–8). After 1922 he was Vinerian professor of English law at Oxford. Holdsworth's greatest achievement is his History of English Law in 17 Volumes.

Sir William Holdsworth's monumental legal history extends from Anglo-Saxon times to the nineteenth-century Judicature Acts. It was interrupted by his death in 1945, when he had reached Volume 12.

Subsequent volumes have been edited by Professors A. L. Goodhart and H. G. Hanbury, at first from Holdsworth's typescript and later, with more difficulty, from his manuscript notes.

Volume 5 incorporates the middle part of Part I of Book IV The Common Law and Its Rivals covering the period 1485- 1700. It takes over from Volume IV in describing the sources and general development of the common law.

It deals first with developments outside the sphere of the common law, such as international, maritime, and commercial law, and with the jurisdiction of the Star Chamber and Chancery courts, and then goes on to examine in detail the development of the common law during the period.
