520    In the eighteenth century, the English common law courts 
       laid the foundation that continues to support present-day 
       Anglo-American law. Lord Mansfield, Chief Justice of the 
       Court of King's Bench, 1756-1788, was the dominant 
       judicial force behind these developments. In this 
       abridgment of his two-volume book, The Mansfield 
       Manuscripts and the Growth of English Law in the 
       Eighteenth Century, James Oldham presents the fundamentals
       of the English common law during this period, with a 
       detailed description of the operational features of the 
       common law courts. This work includes revised and updated 
       versions of the historical and analytical essays that 
       introduced the case transcriptions in the original volumes,
       with each chapter focusing on a different aspect of the 
       law.While considerable scholarship has been devoted to the
       eighteenth-century English criminal trial, little 
       attention has been given to the civil side. This book 
       helps to fill that gap, providing an understanding of the 
       principal body of substantive law with which America's 
       founding fathers would have been familiar. It is an 
       invaluable reference for practicing lawyers, scholars, and
       students of Anglo-American legal history
