<p style='text-align: justify;'><i>De Legibus et Consuetudinibus Angliae</i> is a treatise on English common law. It is traditionally attributed to Henry de Bracton (Henricus de Brattona or Bractona, c. 1210-1268). However recent scholarship has suggested that Bracton was at most a part-author and final editor of the text.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The main topics covered are the acquisition and transmission of property rights, criminal law, and rights and actions associated with land and other forms of real property, supported by contemporary cases. </p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Trinity Hall’s manuscript dates from the late 13th century and is an abridgement of Bracton with 60 folios which are divided into 7 books. Some of the writs and cases are contained within the body of the main text, while others have been put in the margins. It has numerous contemporary marginal notes in Latin, some in the hand of the main scribe.</p>
