Preface Since it first appeared in, 1906 Leage has been, perhaps more than any other Law book, certainly more than any other Roman law work, a students' textbook - written purely for the saident, suited to his needs, and very much appreciated by him, if not always by his teacher or by the more profound scholar.
The simple and straightforward setting out of the main rules of Roman law was ideal for giving an introduction the subject and for preparing for an examination. It is this fundamental quality of catering for the student that this new edition has above all attempted to preserve and even to increase.
Conditions in 1961 - thirty years on even from even Mr Ziegler's edition - have necessitated such drastic changes that in content and other respects the book is very nearly a completely new one; yet the central idea of the work remains very much as it always has been....
