"Coke's Third Institutes gives us a Treatise of great learning, and not unworthy the hand that produced it;... Having run over all criminal matters, and their legal punishments, he concludes with the nature of pardons and restitutions; showing how far, in each of these, our Kings can process alone, and where they want the assistance and joint power of the Parliaments."

Littleton's treatise on Tenures was probably written after he had been appointed to the bench. According to tradition it is addressed to his second son, Richard, who went to the bar, and whose name occurs in the year books of the reign of Henry VII. The book, both historically and from its intrinsic merit, may be characterized as the first text-book upon the English law of property.

Parallel text in Law-French and English. Written during the reign of Edward IV [1442-1483], Littleton's Tenures was much admired for its learning and style. It is concerned with the doctrines of old English Common Law regarding the tenures of real estate as well as issues related to real property. This venerable work, which Coke called "the ornament of the Common Law, and the most perfect and absolute work that ever was written in any humane science," is a considered a landmark because it renounced the principles of Roman law in favor of a set of guidelines and doctrines drawn from the Year Books, and when necessary, hypothetical cases. Littleton [1402-1481] was a King's Serjeant, Judge of Assize and Justice of the Common Pleas. Tomlins [1804-1872] was a notable legal writer and antiquarian. His is best known for his Popular-Law Dictionary (1838). (He is confused sometime with his uncle, Sir Thomas Edlyne Tomlins, the prolific legal writer and editor of the later editions of Jacob's Law-Dictionary.)
