Based on an examination of original sources, this scholarly treatise on Roman private law is divided into four Books: Book I: Citizenship and Status Generally, Book II: Family, Book III: Inheritance, Book IV: Property. Henry John Roby [1830-1915] was a classical lecturer at Cambridge University and professor of jurisprudence at University College, London. He was the author of the important Grammar of the Latin Language, from Plautus to Suetonius (1862) and An Introduction to the Study of Justinian's Digest (1884).
