Skinner's Reports, published posthumously by the author's son, covers cases in the Court of King's Bench from 1681-1698.[1] "It is quite a good book. It is seldom quoted; ... almost all its cases are reported in books which appeared before it, and so got the start of it in Abridgments, and other manuals of reference."[2]

Evidence for Inclusion in Wythe's Library

Both Dean's Memo[3] and the Brown Bibliography[4] suggest Wythe owned the first edition (1728) of this title based on notes in John Marshall's commonplace book.[5] The Wolf Law Library purchased a copy of the first edition (1728) for the George Wythe Collection.

Description of the Wolf Law Library's copy

Rebound in period style in quarter-calf with marbled boards. Purchased from the Lawbook Exchange.
