A little wear to extremities and slight browning of text; otherwise a very good copy. Bookplate of Mainsforth Library on front, and early manuscript notes on rear pastedowns. Decorated by device on title page and by endpiece vignette. The early bibliography of English law by John Worrall (d.1771). First published in 1732, and reissued as time passed each being corrected and improved, and included new titles. The list is notable for recording the prices which the books were sold for.
