To facilitate a reading of the treatises by broadly defining many of the laws discussed in great detail in the treatises, a general introduction to the laws of the period provides concise overviews of the structure of the English legal system- the legal education of practitioners of the law- the kinds of legal literature produced in the period- and the legal position of early modern Englishwomen. A bibliography of important secondary scholarship devoted to the early modern Englishwomans legal position assists the reader in obtaining more specialized knowledge. In addition to the general introduction, a separate introduction to each of the reproduced works is provided, including information about each works publication and authorship, intended audience, content and reception.
