The Florida Supreme Court Library displayed Sir Edward Coke’s Institutes of the Laws of England for Coke’s 470th birthday.

The Fall/Winter edition of Historical Review, a publication of the Florida Supreme Court Historical Society, features articles on the career of the court’s long-time communications director, Justice C. Alan Lawson’s retirement, Justice Renatha Francis becoming the 92nd justice.

The magazine also highlights the 20th anniversary of the appointment of the first Cuban American justice, the acquisition of letters from the 1930s, a look at rare texts in the court’s library, a donation of documents and photos highlighting Supreme Court history, and the answer to “Why are there so many British common law books in the library’s collection?”
