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]
