Tucker s Blackstone is a key resource for understanding how Americans viewed
English common law in the years following the adoption of the Constitution
and the Bill of Rights. Based on his lectures at the College of William and
Mary, Tucker interprets Blackstone s often antidemocratic viewpoint in an
American context. A strong proponent of the First Amendment, he elaborates
a theory of free speech that is more expansive than in the English tradition.
More recently, Tucker s Blackstone has been cited in numerous constitutional
cases by the U.S. Supreme Court relating to original intent. Reprint of the
rare sole edition.
About the Author:
Sir William Blackstone [1723 1780], a Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford,
was a bencher of the Middle Temple, Vinerian Professor of Law at Oxford, and
a member of Parliament. In 1763 he became solicitor general to the queen and
was knighted in 1770. His Commentaries on the Laws of England [1765 69] is
the most influential publication in the history of Anglo-American law. In its
many editions by Tucker and others it remained the standard legal textbook in
America into the late nineteenth century and was the primary, or only, book
studied by hundreds of self-taught lawyers, such as Abraham Lincoln.
St. George Tucker [1752 1827] was a professor of law at College of
William and Mary. In 1804 he was appointed to the Virginia Court of
Appeals in Richmond.
