Bookseller's note placed inside the book: "An exceedingly tall copy in its original binding. There is a slight stain on the extreme lower margin. A book of great interest to the Shakespearian student, as from it Shakespeare is believed to have obtained his legal knowledge. Abraham Fraunce was educated at St. John's Coll., Cambridge, at the expense of Sir Philip Sidney. Most of his works are in verse, and his 'Lawyer's Logick' is partly in poetry. George Peele describes him as 'A peerless sweet translator of our time.' The book is dedicated to the Earl of Pembroke in rhymed hexameters. Quotations from Englis and Latin Poets appear in the Text, and Fraunce appends Virgil's second eclogue in the Original and his own hexametrical translation (arterwards [sic] reprinted at the end of 'Ivychurch') as well as analysis of the Earl of Nothumberland's case and of Stanford's Crown Pleas."
