The Laws and Customs of Scotland in Matters Criminal by Sir George Mackenzie
Stair Society Volume 59
Matters Criminal was first published in 1678. It was almost completely superseded by Hume’s Commentaries on the Law of Scotland respecting Crimes (1800) but Mackenzie provided the concepts and framework on which Hume built.
