ISBN 1-58477-262-X. Cloth. $95. * Sir William Holdsworth [1871-1944] was one of the most distinguished historians of English common law. Written to provide students of Real Property with a concise history of the field, Holdsworth believed this knowledge necessary as contemporary land law was difficult to understand without an understanding of its roots. Fifoot commends this book in his English Law and its Background for its history of the rules against perpetuities (121). The Law Quarterly Review noted that qevery beginner will certainly have to read [this] book before he reads anything elseq (44:105). Both sources cited in Marke, A Catalogue of the Law Collection at New York University (1953) 773.The Law Quarterly Review noted that aquot;every beginner will certainly have to read [this] book before he reads anything elseaquot; (44:105).
