Background -- Why look at the Courts of Equity? -- The records -- The indexes -- Sample cases -- Case study: Jane Austen connection.
"The records of the Courts of Equity, which dealt with cases of fairness rather than law, are among the most detailed, extensive and revealing of all the legal documents historians can consult, yet they are often neglected. Susan Moore's expert introduction to them opens up this fascinating source to researchers who may not be familiar with them and don't know how to take advantage of them."--Publisher's description.
