Intended for state officials, this book contains the following selections from the Corpus Juris Civilis: the Authentica, a portion of the Novels that was believed to be a set of laws intended for Italy, and the final three books of the Code, the legal system established by Justinian. These deal with aspects of administrative law. It also has three texts often included in early editions of the Corpus Juris Civils: the Consuetudines Feudorum, an institute of feudal law compiled around 1170 under the direction of Holy Roma.
