Riassunto: Maitland, Frederick William. English Law and the Renaissance (The Rede Lecture for 1901) with Some Notes. Cambridge: at the University Press, 1901. 98 pp. Reprinted 2000 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. LCCN 99-41654. ISBN 1-58477-034-1. Cloth. $60. "Professor Maitland's Rede Lecture is exactly what an exoteric lecture addressed by a specialist to a mixed audience ought to be- an interesting discourse with plenty of illustration and anecdote, and not too much pressing of any definite argument. The general thesis, however, is clear enough to students of legal history." The notes are full of curious and amusing matters, and almost as good reading as the text." Law Quarterly Review 18:98. Marke, A Catalogue of the Law Collection of New York University (1953) 142.
L'autore: Widely considered the father of legal history, Frederic William Maitland [1850-1906] was an English jurist and historian best known for the standard The History of English Law Before the Time of Edward I, 2 vols. (1895), written with Sir Frederick Pollock. He was educated at Eton and Cambridge and studied at Lincoln's Inn, London. Maitland was called to the bar in 1876, and practiced until 1884 when he became a reader in English law (1884) and professor (1888) at Cambridge. He founded the Selden Society in 1887. Hailed for his original outlook on history, his works profoundly influenced legal scholarship. An extraordinarily productive career was shortened by his death from tuberculosis at age 45.
