I found this brief history of the statute of frauds over on Naked Capitalism and found it quite interesting. While I was aware of the statute of frauds, and its importance, I knew nothing of its history. The similarities between then and now are, um... Frightening.

I am continuously amazed at the things I don't know, particularly when compared to the things I do know.

The UCC has the following:

I had stumbled across an old volume on the Statute of Frauds after noting its mention as authority in an old Supreme Court case a couple of weeks ago and had been intending to post a link.  Your post furnishes an appropriate stub to share this book.

The volume is entitled:

"A Treatise on the Statute of Frauds: As It Regards Declarations in Trust, Contracts, Surrenders, Conveyances, and the Execution and Proof of Wills and Codicils" by William Roberts (NY: I. Riley & Co., 1807)
http://books.google.com/books?id=NYozAAAAIAAJ&pg=PR1#v=onepage&q&f=false

While there are no doubt many more authoritative and recent treatments of this subject, this volume was clearly a comprehensive and widely respected authoritative treatment and reference used in the earliest days of our Republic.

For those seeking a better understanding of the ancient antecedents to our laws, this volume has much to recommend it!

The full text of the original "Act for the Prevention of Frauds and Perjuries" as enacted during the reign of King Charles, 29 Car. 2, Ch. 3, is given in the Appendix to Robert's book at pp. 467-73.
