The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd., 2006 - 971 sider
Reprint of the first edition. According to Holdsworth, this "remarkably able pioneer treatise" is one of the most distinguished English law books written during the eighteenth century. Well arranged and clearly written, it begins with an introductory chapter that defines different types of corporations. The following chapters discuss their creation, relation to the public, institutional constitution, visitation and dissolution. Thoroughly grounded in the history of the subject, it cites and discusses every relevant authority from the Year Books to the author's lifetime. Kyd [d. 1811], a Scottish lawyer, wrote distinguished treatises on awards and bills of exchange and a continuation of Comyn's Digest. Holdsworth, A History of English Law XII:400.
