Attributed in the MS. Catalogue to Lambard: but I do not find the name Νομοιστωρ.
To prove yt ye Common Law of England was much ye same with ye Laws of ye Saxon or Northern Nations.
By making a parallel betwixt these Laws and those collected by Lindenbrogius.
Other notes on the fly-leaf, e.g.
A statute book beginning from K. Stephen, amongst ye MSS. wch were Welds, now in Littleb.
Near the beginning is a facsimile of several pages in the Textus Roffensis.
