Documents of the Constitution of England and America: From Magna Charta to the Federal Constitution of 1789 (Classic Reprint) (Paperback)
Excerpt from Documents of the Constitution of England and America: From Magna Charta to the Federal Constitution of 1789 Neither Professor Creasy's text-book, nor his Rise and Progress of the English Constitution, was seen by me till the first half of this volume was in print, or I should have adopted his excellent translation of the Charter. But I have been gratified to find that his version agrees in every important respect with my own, and that he has adopted in his commentary the same general views of the character and meaning of the various clauses. The object of the notes here given is only to render the text intelligible, by explaining those technical peculiarities of the Feudal Sys tem which it is the glory of the Great Charter to have re moved or mitigated.
