A study of the Parliament of Paris and the other parliaments of France
Date of Award
France, History, Courts
The subject of the Parliaments of France, so far as I am aware, is treated by no one English author. While frequent allusions are made to the Parliaments in all histories of France, somewhat diligent search has failed to find in any English work an adequate explanation of their origin, their organization, and their political history. The collection of materials for even so short a thesis, has therefore been attended with considerable difficulty. The translations of the authorities quoted in the notes, are, in all cases, those of the writer.
