Magna Carta, sum aliis antiquis statutis. London, 1531-32.

Eighteen printings of Magna Carta occurred during the 16th century. The Law Library owns fourteen of these early printing of Magna Carta. One of the Library's treasures is its 1514 copy of Magna Carta, the earliest printing of Magna Carta in the Library. Another is its copy printed in 1534, the first time the Charter appeared in English rather than Latin.

Shown here is the first of the Berthelet editions.
