The first edition of this work (another edition in the following year removes the Hawles attribution on the title page). Hawles is Sir John Hawles (1645-1716) who wrote a number of legal works.

We find it interesting that in a ready reckoner (the majority of the content of this book) the authors felt it important to include instructions for those who might be jurymen.
