Description : This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1816 edition. Excerpt: ... the custody of prisoners committed by the court of verge. Under him are six marshal's men, who are properly the king's bailiffs, and arrest in the verge of the court, when a warrant is backed by the board of green-cloth. The court where causes of this kind, between man and man, are tried, is called the Marfhalfea, and is under the knight-marshal. This is also the name of the prison in Southwark; the reason of which may probably be, that the marshal of the king's house was vont to sit there in judgment, or keep his prison. Earl Marshal of Scotland. His office was to command the cavalry, whereas the constable commanded thewliole army. They seem, however, to have had a fort of joint command, as of old all orders were addressed ."to our constable and marifchal." The office of earl marifchal has never been out of the noble family of Keith. It was reserved at the Union; and, when the heritable jurisdictions were bought, it was in the crown, being forfeited by the rebellion of George Keith, earl marifchal, in 1715. Earl Marshal of England. The chief officer of arms: The duke of Suffolk claims To be high steward; next, the duke of Norfolk To be earl marjhal. Shakespeare. The earl marshal, in order of precedence, is the eighth reat officer of state. See Heraldry, vol. ix. p-455. It js his charge to take cognizance of all matters relating to honour and arms, to determine contracts that respect deeds of arms out of the realm upon land, and matters concerning war within the realm, which cannot be determined by common law, in which he usually proceeds according to the civil law.

Description : In his introduction to this edition of Coleridge's Marginalia, the late George Whalley wrote, "There is no body of marginalia--in English, or perhaps in any other language--comparable with Coleridge's in range and variety and in the sensitiveness, scope, and depth of his reaction to what he was reading.'' The Princeton edition of the Marginalia, of which this is the third volume, will bring together over 8,000 notes, many never before printed, varying from a single word to substantial essays. In alphabetical order of authors, the notes are presented literatim from the original manuscripts whenever the annotated volumes can be found. Each note is preceded by the passage of the original text that appears to have provoked Coleridge's comment. Texts in foreign languages are followed by translations.The present volume comprises annotations on 123 books (from authors C to H), including Donne's Poems and Sermons, seven copies of Eichhorn's biblical commentaries, eight volumes of Fichte's works, three Fielding novels and Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, Hegel's Logik, three works of Herder, and eight of Thomas Fuller. Besides English and American works, Coleridge annotated works in German, Latin, Greek, and Italian, the subjects of the volumes encompassing politics, religion, philosophy, poetry, aesthetics, medicine, law, and fiction. Part II also describes seventeen known but lost Coleridge-annotated volumes
