This 1931 book was written to replace The Elementary Principles of Roman Law but it is not a second edition of that book.

It is more systematic in plan: it aims at giving a central view of the different institutions of the Private Law and of the notions which underlie them. But its purpose is the same: its is for the use of students who have read the Institutes and little more, and it is intended to stimulate rather than to inform.
