Liber Horn is a book completed in 1311 by Andrew Horn. The National Archives (the official archive of the UK government) describes it as "a compilation of charters, statutes and customs".[1] It is thought to have been a compilation of two separate books: De Veteribus Legibus Angliae and De Statutes. The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography describes it as "the most comprehensive of all statute collections".[2][3] Portions of Liber Horn were reproduced in Statutes of the Realm, Volume 1.[4]
