This unique series contains facsimiles of virtually all the patent cases reported in England prior to 1883 - over 800 cases in all. The cases are arranged in chronological order, starting with the Case of Monopolies (1602) and running through the enormously productive period of the Industrial Revolution and the Victorian expansion. All reports relating to a case are grouped together for ease of reference.
In addition to the indexes of case names and defendants, there is a comprehensive legal digest based on Higgin's Digest of 1890, but including those cases in this compilation to which he did not refer. This series features a useful index of patents and patentees, with the patent serial number, where these have been identified.
