Frederic William Maitland (1850-1906) was a pioneering English legal historian. Originally published in 1911, this book forms one of three volumes of Maitland's collected papers.

Taken together the texts cover a broad range of areas, with some philosophical and biographical subject matter, but for the most part they relate to the spheres of legal and social history. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in legal history and Maitland's contribution to it.

There is no reduced price available for the three Volume set of Maitland.
