ABOUT: This classic fully leather bound edition of Glanvill, by the great medievalist G.D.G. Hall, examines the treatise on the laws and customs of the realm of England. Undoubtedly one of the best-known and most important works of medieval English law, Glanvill’s itemization and commentary on writs and the procedure connected with them provides invaluable information in legal practice in the twelfth century, but has far more than this to offer. It is a work of original analysis, covering such significant topics as dowry, debt, and inheritance, and allowing us a unique insight into the medieval legal mind.
