by Sir Gefrey Palmer

Sir Geoffrey Palmer (1598-1670) was a member of Parliament and the attorney-general to Charles II. In 1633 he edited the reports of his father-in-law, Sir Francis Moore, and a good amount of this appears in the present work. This consists "of cases chiefly in the king's bench from 1619 to 1629, and [they] are considered to be of respectable authority. Whether Palmer did more than edit them is doubtful." [1]
