Gai Institutiones Iuris Civilis, trans Edward Poste, this 4th edn E.A. Whittuck OUP

£30.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Hardback, 668 pages, dustjacket unclipped, Oxford University Press. Title page: Gai Institutiones or Institutes of Roman Law by Gaius, translation and commentary by the late Edward Poste M.A. Fourth Edition, revised and enlarged by E.A. Whittuck M.A., B.C.L. With an historical introduction by A.H.J. Greenidge D.Litt. This is the 1925 impression of the 1904 fourth edition. The jacket is badly worn, tanned, foxed and much handled, with tears at the spine corners, with loss, shelf rubbing and nibbling. It is however in one piece. Underneath the cover is blue cloth with gold lettering on the spine, a little bumped at top and bottom but the corners are good. At the top right edge of the cover there are signs of damp ingress with an area of staining and mildewing; there is a much smaller example of this on the back cover. In neither case has the dampness penetrated to the inside of the book or to the pages. The page block edge is smooth and tanned on the top and rough down the side and on the underside. Inside the book the pastedowns are intact with foxing and tanning to the free end papers. The condition of the book inside is good, with clean clear text and no markings.
