Oxford's variorum edition of William Blackstone's seminal treatise on the common law of England and Wales offers the definitive account of the Commentaries' development in a modern format. For the first time it is possible to trace the evolution of English law and Blackstone's thought through the eight editions of Blackstone's lifetime, and the authorial corrections of the posthumous ninth edition. Introductions by the general editor and the volume editors set the Commentaries in their historical context, examining Blackstone's distinctive view of the common law, and editorial notes throughout the four volumes assist the modern reader in understanding this key text in the Anglo-American common law tradition. Entitled Of Private Wrongs, Book III can be divided into three principal parts. The first describes the multiple courts in England and their jurisdictions, including the wrongs cognizable in each of them. The second describes some aspects of the substantive common law: wrongs to persons and to personal and real property. The third describes the processes of litigation in the courts of common law and equity.

Sir William Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England (1765-1769) stands as the first great effort to reduce the English common law to a unified and rational system. Blackstone demonstrated that the English law as a system of justice was comparable to Roman law and the civil law of the Continent. Clearly and elegantly written, the work achieved immediate renown and exerted a powerful influence on legal education in England and in America which was to last into the late nineteenth century. The book is regarded not only as a legal classic but as a literary masterpiece. Previously available only in an expensive hardcover set, Commentaries on the Laws of England is published here in four separate volumes, each one affordably priced in a paperback edition. These works are facsimiles of the eighteenth-century first edition and are undistorted by later interpolations. Each volume deals with a particular field of law and carries with it an introduction by a leading contemporary scholar. In his introduction to this first volume, Of the Rights of Persons, Stanley N. Katz presents a brief history of Blackstone's academic and legal career and his purposes in writing the Commentaries. Katz discusses Blackstone's treatment of the structure of the English legal system, his attempts to justify it as the best form of government, and some of the problems he encountered in doing so.

But no subject of a nation at was with us can, by the law of nations, come into the realm, not can travel himself upon the high seas, or send his goods and merchandise from one place to another, without clanger of 6eing seised by our subjects, unless he has letters of safeconduct; which, by divers antient statutes0 must be granted nnder the king's great seat and iiwolled in- chancery, or else are of no effect: the king being supposed the best judge (c)f such emergencies, as may deserve exception scorn the general law of arms. But passports under the king's signmanual, or licences from his ambassadors abroad, are now more usually obtained, and. are allowed to be of equal Validity. Indeeit the saw of England1, as a; commercial country, pays a very particular regard to foreign merchants in innumerable instances. One I cannot omit to mention: that by magna carta* it is provided, that all merchants (unless publickly prohibited before-hand) shall have fase-conduct to depart from, to come into, to tarry in, and to go through England, for the exercise of merchandize, without any unreasonable-imposts, except in time of war: and, if a war breaks out between us and their country, they shall be attached (if in England) without harm of body or goods, till the king or his chief justiciary be informed how our merchants-are treated in the land with which we are at war; and, if ours be secure in that land, they shall be secure in ours. This seems tb have been a common rule of equity among all the northern nations; for we learn from Stieinhook i, that it was a maxim among the Goths and Swedes, ** quam Ugem txttri nobis*' pojiare, tandem illis ponemus."
