This volume is the second part of a two-volume edition of Chief Baron Gilbert’s writings on property and contract. This volume includes Gilbert’s treatise on the law of contract, the first general treatise on its subject in England. It also includes his ‘History of the Feud’, which Gilbert wrote as the historical introductory chapter to his projected treatise on real property, seeking to explain the feudal roots of English land law. Most of the rest of Gilbert’s chapters on real property were published in fragmented form in Matthew Bacon’s A New Abridgment of the Law, and the volume includes a concordance to show where in Bacon’s publication Gilbert’s material is to be found.
