“[Corporations] cannot commit treason, nor be outlawed, nor excommunicate, for they have no souls.”

– Edward Coke, The Reports, “Case of Sutton’s Hospital”

 

A rare second edition of Edward Coke’s English legal reports. Edward Coke was an English judge and lawyer from the 16th– and early 17th-centuries being most remembered for his prosecution in the Gunpowder Plot, as well as writing ‘The Reports’. His judicial rulings resounded all over the western world, in fact, his decisions had a direct influence on the third, fourth, and sixteenth amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

 

‘The Reports’ is a gathering of specific court cases with commentary and arguments. Cases include handling of money exchange whether it be through loans, income, and gift-giving, common pleas cases, and financial obligations. These law reports have been some of the most important and popular writings on court cases in the English language. According to law scholar John Baker, these ‘Reports’ are

“of excellent quality, having the distinction of being cited simply as ‘The Reports’, and are perhaps the single most influential series of named reports”

Theodore Plunckett referred to ‘Reports’ with ‘incomparable richness [with] profound influence upon the literature, and indeed the substance, of English Law”
