  From  Webster's  Revised  Unabridged  Dictionary  (1913)  [web1913]: 
 
  Bookland  \Book"land`\,  Bockland  \Bock"land`\,  n.  [AS.  b?cland; 
  b?c  book  +  land  land.]  (O.  Eng.  Law) 
  Charter  land  held  by  deed  under  certain  rents  and  free 
  services,  which  differed  in  nothing  from  free  socage  lands. 
  This  species  of  tenure  has  given  rise  to  the  modern 
  freeholds.
