"The noted legal historian F.W. Maitland described [this work] as "the crown and flower of English jurisprudence." The work ... attempts to describe rationally the whole of English law, a task that was not again undertaken until Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England in the eighteenth century." Written circa 1220-1230.
"The goal of this project is to create a collaborative database on the published sources of English medieval legal documents, and to provide links to the growing number of online sources currently being developed.
"Emphasis ... has been placed on sources published since 1950."
"[S]earch a diverse body of online primary resources relating to written and early printed culture in Britain during the period 1000 to 1500[, including] literary manuscripts, historical documents and early printed books ... on websites owned by libraries, archives, universities and publishers."
"The Year Books are our principal source materials for the development of legal doctrines, concepts, and methods from 1290 to 1535, a period during which the common law developed into recognizable form. About 20,000 individual reports or 'pleas' have been printed, and others remain in manuscript. This database indexes all those year book reports printed between the years 1378 and 1535 and a large number from 1268 forward. Of these reports, more than 4,000 from 1399 forward have been fully indexed and paraphrased in this database."
