Digest of Justinian: Volume I
Originally published in 1903, this two-volume work contains an English translation of the first fifteen books of the Digest of Justinian, which formed one part of Roman civil law.
Monro uses the Latin text edited by Theodor Mommsen, and translates Latin legal terms by using explanatory substitute words, not by giving the nearest approximation of the idea in English law.
Volume One contains the translation of the first six books of the Digest. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in late Roman law or the history of law in Europe.
Volume Two contains the translation of Books Seven to Fifteen.
