The corruption and deficiency of the lavves of England soberly discovered: or, Liberty working up to its just height. Wherein is set down, I. The standart [sic], or measure of all just lawes; which is threefold. 1. Their originall and rise, viz. the free choice, or election of the people. 2. Their rule and square, viz. principle; of justice, righteousnesse, and truth. 3. Their use and end, viz. the liberty safety of the people. II. The laws of England weighed in this threefold balance, & found too light. 1. In their originall, force, power, conquest, or constraint. 2. In their rule, corrupt will, or principles of unrighteousnesse and wrong. 3. In their end, the grievance, trouble, and bondage of the people. III. The necessity of the reformation of the lawes of England; together with the excellency (and yet difficulty) of this work. IV. The corrupt interest of lawyers in this Commonwealth. /
