Works of authority in the British constitution

Works of authority in the British constitution are books written by constitutional theorists that are considered part of the constitution.

The two most prominent works of authority are "An Introduction to the Study of the Law of the Constitution" 1885 by A.V. Dicey and "A Practical Treatise on the Law, Privileges, Proceedings and Usage of Parliament" ("Parliamentary Practise") 1844 by Erskine May. The former is now a historical document, while the latter is regularly updated to reflect developments in parliamentary procedure.
