The English Reports bring together all the important case reports from the period 1220-1865, when the official Law Reports commenced. The set contains full reports of early cases which played an important role in formulating the basis of the common law as we know it today and which continue to be binding. As a means of providing speedy access to this diverse body of material, the English Reports are uniquely useful.

The English Reports contain over 100,000 cases from 274 series, running to well over 200,000 pages. They are easy to use. The two index volumes dispense with the need to consult several diverse sources and a new wallchart provides a further invaluable guide to the series.

The English Reports are authoritative. Before the reports were assembled, there were many different series of early reports which varied considerably in their accuracy and authority. These reports remedy this deficiency by collecting together the reports of most value and reproducing them verbatim. The reports are also respected throughout the common law jurisdictions and held in many United Kingdom and overseas library collections. Finally, the reports are comprehensive, covering cases heard in all English courts and the complete range of subjects.

The complete set consists of 12 series of volumes (including two index volumes) each covering particular courts and distinguished by different colour bindings. Complete sets, part sets and individual volumes can be obtained.
