Wood, Thomas. An Institute of the Laws of England; or, The Laws of England in Their Natural Order, According to Common Use. London: Printed by W. Strahan and M. Woodfall, 1772. Folio. [ii], x, 657, [40] pp. Reprinted 2006 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 978-1-58477-588-1. ISBN-10: 1-58477-588-2. Cloth. $250.* Reprint of the tenth and final edition. Wood's Institute was the only treatise, until the publication of Blackstone's Commentaries, to furnish a comprehensive view of the common law. It was "the most important and the most popular of his books. It was written, he tells us, to supply the want of a methodical book on English law, which could be put into the hands of students in the Inns of Court and the Universities." Holdsworth, HEL XII:419. Blackstone recognized the books considerable merits. "Upon the whole," he said, "his work is undoubtedly a valuable performance; and great are the obligations of the student to him, and his predecessor Finch, for their happy progress in reducing the elements of law from their former chaos to a regular methodical science."
