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 6 concludes Part I of Book IV The Common Law arid Its Rivals' covering the period 1485-1700, and considering the sources and general development.

Chapter VI deals with the public law of the seventeenth century and Chapters VII and VIII with the enacted law and the growth of the legal profession in the latter half of the seventeenth century.
