Excerpt from A Commentary on the Psalms, Vol. 4: From Primitive and Mediaeval Writers; And From the Various Office-Books and Hymns of the Roman, Mazarabic, Ambrosian, Gallican, Greek, Coptic, Armenian, and Syrian Rites For unfeigned heart, the a.v. Has uprightness 06 heart, which is closer to the LXX. Cbotmm xapbias and the 111 ate dimectione cordis. And this is itself the first groun of thanksgiving, that god has by His grace made that heart which was perverse and crooked, straight and upright, so as to fit it for the study of the Divine judgments. And the word lea/med implies a teacher. The Psalmist would have as understand that he acquired his knowledge of the Divine law from god Himself as his instructor, and from the doc trine of his fathers, not inventing opinions for himself after the fashion of sectaries. There is a further stress in the word learned, as showing us that while on the one hand mere knowledge of Gon's law will not keep a depraved and crooked heart in the right way, so on the other that know led e is necessary even to the pure and upright heart to em. Lo it to obey Gon's will. And while all Gon's jug; ments are judgments of. His righteousness, yet these wo most fully refer to the final sentences at the Last Day pro nounced severally to tho se on the right hand and those on the left. Well may those souls which have heard the Voice of the Loan say to them, Come, ye blessed of My Farina, inherit the kingdom, thank Him with an unfeigned heart.

Sir William Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England (1765-1769) stands as the first great effort to reduce the English common law to a unified and rational system. Blackstone demonstrated that the English law as a system of justice was comparable to Roman law and the civil law of the Continent. Clearly and elegantly written, the work achieved immediate renown and exerted a powerful influence on legal education in England and in America which was to last into the late nineteenth century. The book is regarded not only as a legal classic but as a literary masterpiece. Previously available only in an expensive hardcover set, Commentaries on the Laws of England is published here in four separate volumes, each one affordably priced in a paperback edition. These works are facsimiles of the eighteenth-century first edition and are undistorted by later interpolations. Each volume deals with a particular field of law and carries with it an introduction by a leading contemporary scholar. Introducing this third volume, Of Private Wrongs, John H. Langbein discusses Blackstone's account of procedure and jurisdiction, jury trial, and equity. He also examines Blackstone's uneasy attitude toward the celebrated legal frictions of English civil procedure.

Excerpt from The Anthropological Review, Vol. 4 On the first appearance of his Principles of Geology, Sir Charles (then Mr.) Lyell was accused by some reviewers of putting the cart before the horse - Of discussing the respective merits of an unimpaired and uniform series of changes, and a succession of catastrophes diminishing in intensity, before proceeding to a statement of facts showing the adequacy of existing causes to account for ancient geological phenomena. But the order adopted by Lyell was the best calculated to prepare the mind of the reader not only to appreciate, but to take an interest in, the mass of circumstantial evi dances, or verse cause, contained in that justly celebrated work.

The Greek Tradition in Republic Thought completely rewrites the standard history of republican political theory. It excavates an identifiably Greek strain of republican thought which attaches little importance to freedom as non-dependence and sees no intrinsic value in political participation. This tradition's central preoccupations are not honour and glory, but happiness (eudaimonia) and justice - defined, in Plato's terms, as the rule of the best men. This set of commitments yields as startling readiness to advocate the corrective redistribution of wealth, and even the outright abolition of private property. The Greek tradition was revived in England during the early sixteenth century and was broadly influential throughout the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Its exponents included Sir Thomas More, James Harrington, Montesquieu and Thomas Jefferson, and it contributed significantly to the ideological underpinnings of the American Founding as well as the English Civil Wars.

One of the most celebrated works in the Anglo-American legal tradition, William Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England (1765-9) has recently begun to attract renewed interest from legal and other scholars. The Commentaries no longer dominate legal education as they once did, especially in North America during the century after their first publication. But they continue to be regularly cited in the judgments of superior courts of review on both sides of the Atlantic, and elsewhere throughout the common-law world. They also provide constitutional, cultural, intellectual and legal historians with a remarkably comprehensive account of the role of law, lawyers and the courts in the imperial superpower that was England on the cusp of the industrial revolution. The life and character of Blackstone himself, the nature and sources of his jurisprudence as expounded in the Commentaries, and the impact of his great book, both within and beyond his native shores, are the main themes of this collection. Individual essays treat Blackstone's early architectural treatises and their relationship to the Commentaries; his idiosyncratic book collecting; his views of the role of judges, interpretation of statutes, the law of marriage, the status of wives, natural law, property law and the legalities of colonisation, and the varied reception of the Commentaries in America and continental Europe. Blackstone's bibliography and iconography also receive attention. Combining the work of both eminent and emerging scholars, this interdisciplinary venture sheds welcome new light on a legal classic and its continued influence.
