Atkinson vol. 1 1800x700(2)

Atkinson’s Reports 

These law reports are part of our Miscellaneous Manuscripts collection, nos. 97-98.  The series dates from Michaelmas 1729 to Easter 1739 and were written by an unknown hand.

An inscription at the beginning of Volume 1 states that they were purchased from John Atkinson of No. 1 Stone Buildings in 1825.  The Law List of 1821 lists John Atkinson as a Special Pleader not at the Bar.

The volumes were presented to the Inn in 1855 by Charles Jasper Selwyn who was part of a family with many members of Lincoln’s Inn across different generations.
