Scope and Contents
(1) ‘Praxis Francisci Clarke, tam ius dicentibus, quam aliis omnibus qui in foro ecclesiastico versantur, apprime utilis’; this title, the manuscript being without one, is given from the edition printed in Dublin in 1666. The epistle dedicatory in the manuscript differs considerably from that in the printed copy, and there are occasional verbal variations throughout the work. The index has been misbound between ff. 24 and 25 of the following item; (2) ‘Modus procedendi in curia admiralitatis Anglie’. At the end of the volume are two leaves containing a list of fees in the ecclesiastical courts; immediately preceding which are five leaves (written with the book reversed) containing entries of the acts of court in the case of Burley and Fishe.
