Descripción

viii, 1 leaf, 303 pp; ads (dated Feb., 1890). Original cloth. Old gift inscription on flyleaf, else Very Good+. Contains 12 lectures. 'Sir Frederick Pollock's 1886 Oxford lectures on The King's Peace pointed out that the idea of particular punishment for those who violate it is a most ancient one. What I found interesting is Pollock's tracing of the steps whereby the King's peace was originally conferred at particular times and in particular places. It was only by the end of the thirteenth century that the king's peace had grown from an occasional privilege to a universal right. Thus, the expression 'the king's highway' that survives to this day shows that the idea of peculiar legal sanctity clung about highways (and journeying) in popular imagination long after they had ceased to be more under the king's peace than any other English ground' (Justice Keith Mason AC, 'NATIONAL SECURITY LAW COURSE', 13 Sept. 2006, University of Sydney, Supreme Court, New South Wales Web site; citing pp. 82-3 in Pollock 1890).
