Originally published at 1932, this book, based on long research in municipal and borough records, attempts to correlate some of the evidence bearing on the representation of the towns of Medieval England, and to discover the answers to such basic questions as how the citizens were elected, paid, and taxed, what their function in parliament was, and what type of men they were. It is an essential study for all those concerned with the development of the English Parliamentary System.
