Excerpt from Seldom Society: Select Cases Before the King's Council

The death of Mr. Leadam in the Fall of 1913 in the full vigour of his work was a serious loss to the Selden Society. With eminent success as an author and editor, he had contributed three of the former publications of the Society, and was already engaged upon the present volume, when the pen dropped from his hand. As his literary executor it is incumbent upon me to explain the part of the labour for which he is to be credited. Eight of the selected cases and excerpts, including Boistard v. Cumbwell, Taylor v. Rochester, Bishop of Valence v. Worcester, Rex v. Gerdeston, Lombards v. Mercers, Molyns v. Fiennes, Lowestoft v. Yarmouth, and Taylors v. Brembre were left in completed form with texts, translations, footnotes, and introductions. These have been retained with the least possible alteration. In Ughtred v. Musgrave I have extended the text, and further elaborated the notes. A mass of miscellaneous papers also were placed in my hands. But the selection and annotation of all the other cases are substantially my own. Because the work covers much of the same ground, for the history of the subject I must frequently refer the reader to my former treatise of The Kings Council(1913). As with almost every other enterprise in our affiliated countries, the world war has had its effect of cutting off communications and delaying the completion of the work. At this distance from the manuscript sources, Mr. Charles Johnson of the Public Record Office has been my constant ally. He has read all the proofs, corrected many a doubtful passage, and out of his expert knowledge contributed materially to the notes. Finally, under existing difficulties of transportation, the Harvard University Press with hearty cooperation has solved the problem of publication on this side of the Atlantic.
