Roger Comberbach served as recorder of Chester and a judge of North Wales.[1] Like many other reports of his time, Comberbach's reports were almost universally disparaged.[2] Wallace sums up the work as "[a] posthumous note-book, published by the author's son, and therefore, perhaps, as filial editorships generally go, more pardonable for its worthlessness."[3]

Evidence for Inclusion in Wythe's Library

Brown's Bibliography[4] includes the 1st (1724) edition Comberbach's Reports based on quotations in the manuscript copy of John Marshall's law notes. The Wolf Law Library followed Brown's suggestion and moved a copy of this edition from another rare book collection to the George Wythe Collection.

Description of the Wolf Law Library's copy

Rebound in period style. Spine features four bands and blue gilt labels. Signed "R. Scudmore" on the title page. Purchased through the generosity of Daniel W. Baran and Lena Stratton Baran, Class of 1936.
