These two volumes (Volume 2: isbn 9781587981111) capture the vicissitudes of Italian public and private law from their antecedents in the Dark Ages to their real-ization in more modern times.

This influence can still be found in the various codes in Europe. Thus, the history of the laws and cus¬toms of Italy, involving the Holy Roman Empire and the feudal system with which it was associated, the Civil Law, the Church and Canon Law, and the law of merchants, also traces the development of European legal ideas and institutions.

This copious work will strike a chord with''students of history and law as well as those fascinated by the field of comparative law.

Carlo Calisse was born in 1860 and died in 1945. He was appointed to his first professorship in 1889 in the history of law at the University of Marcerata, and shortly thereafter to a similar post at the University of Pisa.

In 1907 he became Emeritus Professor at the University of Pisa and in 1908 he was made a Professor of Ecclesiastical Law at the University of Rome. He served in the national legislature from 1909 to 1919.

Besides parliamentary work, he held a number of important public offices, such as Counselor of State and representative to the Permanent International Labor Organization of the League of Nations. He authored a number of works dealing with legal history.
