First published in 1925, and originally delivered as the Sandars Lectures in Bibliography for 1922-3, this book not only examines the history of the Year Book and its role in English law, but also provides practical suggestions for students of palaeography. Bolland supplies appendices at the end of the book with facsimiles of yearbook entries with a transliteration and translation of each. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in British legal history or palaeography.
