THE DIGEST OF ROMAN LAW: THEFT, RAPINE, DAMAGE AND INSULT
by Justinian, translated by C. F. Kolbert
published by Penguin, 1979
LIMITED TO ONE COPY ONLY, CONDITION 4/10
The Civil Law of Rome in its developed form – in its clarity, simplicity and orderliness – is undoubtedly one of the supreme achievements of the human mind and spirit. Brought to its finest flowering by the Emperor Justinian (died A.D. 565), it has had a continuing and pervading influence on subsequent civilizations.
Soon after becoming emperor Justinian put in train the codification of the law, which had evolved over the thirteen centuries. In 533 the Commission, headed by 'the eminent Tribonian', published The Digest, their most celebrated and substantial work.
