Two of the greatest Dutch jurists of their day, Van Leeuwen and Vinnius were perhaps the most widely read Dutch jurists during the late-seventeenth and eighteenth century. De Origine is a collection of annotated excerpts from the Corpus Juris Civilis and essays. The first essay, "De Origine Juris" is by Vinnius. Van Leeuwen compiled the excerpts and wrote two of the essay. Both authors provide annotations and cite additional annotations from other authors. It was first published in 1671, its third and final edition in 1762. Dekkers, Bibliotheca Belgica Juridica 99 (12).
