The standard edition of the Laws of the Continental Teutons is that contained in the

Monutnenta Germaniae historica :

That of the laws of the Insular Teutons (Anglo-Saxons), is

Liebermann's Gesetze der Angelsachsen^ vols. I., II. 1897, 1906.

^2 8s. Jacob Grimm's Deutsche Rechtsalterthiinier (last edition by

Hendler and Hiibner, 1899. 2 vols, j^i los.):

are invaluable to the folklorist student of legal antiquities

as examples of the study and interpretation of legal texts

by the greatest master in folk-lore. Pollock (Sir F.) and F. W. Maitland, History of English Lata

before Edward L. 2nd ed. 2 vols. 1899. C.J.Clay. ^£2. . • . Is valuable for comparative as well as for historical study. Holmes (0. W.) The Common Law. 1881.
