About this product
- DescriptionSir 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 rekwn and exerted a powerful influence on legal education in England and in America which was to last into the late nineteenth centure. The book is regarded t only as a legal classic but as a literary masterpiece.
