House of Lords Sessional Papers, 1714-1805: with Index, Volumes 1-10
Oxford University Press, USA, Jun 1, 1972 - Law
This compilation of the parliamentary papers of the House of Lords is one of the most substantial and richest sources of British legal, political and social history ever published. Because of their great rarity, the papers have remained virtually unknown to historians and legal scholars. Before the publication of the House of Lords Sessional Papers , no library in the world, including The House of Lords, had a complete hard copy collection.
These volumes consists of all the surviving reports, bills, accounts, resolutions, orders, ordinances, etc. presented to the House of Lords and ordered to be printed. The set also features complete coverage of the Trial of Warren Hastings. Handsomely produced in bound folio volumes with distinctive gold lettering, this set is a must for any serious Anglophile collection.
