Laws gathered from other secondary sources, such as the writings of ancient editions of inscriptions and of papyri by modern scholars, are also included. This volume is Volume II of The Corpus of Roman Law (Corpus Juris Romani), General Editor, Clyde Pharr. "The bulk of the texts are taken from the great source books: Bruns' Fontes, Girard's Textes, and Riccobono's FIRA. These collections were compiled very much "in usum scholarum," without translation, the texts themselves laden with the apparatus of textual criticism, and all comment in Latin. The present translation therefore is much to be welcomed, for there are many lawyers, historians and others, who, without being specialists in this field, may expect to find great value in the collection. (...) Political, social and economic historians will find this volume a mine of varied and valuable information." --David Yale, Yale Law Journal 71 (1961-1962) 1370, 1374.
