Bibliography

GENERAL WORKS

To avoid confronting the reader with an unwieldy bibliography I have endeavored to indicate only the most useful recent works, a number of typical sources, and places where more comprehensive bibliographies may be found.

BIBLIOGRAPHIES. The following are useful bibliographical aids: Cam H. M., and Turberville A. S., "A Short Bibliography of English Constitutional History" ( Historical Association Leaflet No. 75, 1929); Davies G., Bibliography of British History, Stuart Period, 1603-1714 ( 1928); Grose C. L., A Select Bibliography of British History 1660-1760 ( 1939); Gross G., The Sources and Literature of English History from the Earliest Times to about 1485 ( 2nd ed., 1915); Milne A. T., Writings on British History (annually, 1934-); Paetow L. J., Guide to the Study of Medieval History ( 1931); Pargellis S., and Medley D. J., Bibliography of British History: the Eighteenth Century, 1714-1789 ( 1950), a companion volume to Davies G., cited above, and Read, Conyers, Bibliography of British History, Tudor Period, 1485-1603 ( 1933). Many of the volumes cited below contain excellent bibliographies.

CONSTITUTIONAL AND LEGAL HISTORIES. Outstanding studies in constitutional history include: Anson W. R., The Law and Custom of the Constitution ( 2 vols., vol. i, 5th ed. 1922, vol. ii, 4th ed. 1935); Bagehot Walter, The English Constitution (rev. ed. 1928 with an introduction by the late Earl Balfour); Dicey A. V. , Introduction to the Study of the Law of the Constitution ( 9th ed. 1939; first pub. 1885). Students would be well advised to read some of the writings of this great nineteenth century English jurist and defender of Parliamentary sovereignty. In this book, for instance, Professor Dicey formulated his famous distinction between legal and political sovereignty. Of enduring reputation is Lowell A. L., The Government of England ( 2 vols., 1910). Every student should be required to read at least several chapters of Maitland F. W., The Constitutional History of England ( 8th ed. 1936). Of considerable value is Sir Thomas Erskine May massive and scholarly The Constitutional History of England since the Accession of George III (3 vols., 12th ed. 1912. Vols. i, ii, covering the period 1760- 1860 were written by May; vol. iii, covering the years 1860- 1911, was written by Francis C. Holland).

The most famous exposition of medieval constitutional history is that of Bishop William Stubbs: The Constitutional History of England (3 vols., 1874- 83. There are several editions). The unwary student should be warned that many of the premises and conclusions of Bishop Stubbs are no longer considered valid in the light of modern research. See also Petit-Dutaillis C. E., and Lefebvre G., Studies and Notes Supplementary to Stubbs' Constitutional History down to the Great Charter (vols. i, ii were written by Petit-Dutaillis in
