First published in 1939, this book is the second edition of a 1939 original. Aimed at beginners, it sets forth the main principles of Roman Law from both classical and later times, avoiding discussion of the problems involved in a more advanced study of the subject.

Chapters are divided into three broad areas, concerning laws relating to persons, things and actions. An additional discussion of the sources and arrangement of laws is also provided. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Roman law and legal history.
