Excerpt from Revue d'Auvergne, 1886, Vol. 3 A peine le Bedat a - t-il quitte sa vallee d'origine et gagne la plaine, qu'il se ramifie en trois branches princi pales. La premiere, la plus importante passe a la Maison Rouge; la deuxieme suit le chemin d'interet commun n 2 jusqu'au Pont - des - Quaue - Gorges et la troisieme coule a la Maison - Blanche. Ces deux dernieres sont re liees par une anastomose qui part du Pont - des - Quatre Gorges et suit le chemin Vert limite orientale des terri toiros de Cebazat et de Gerzat. Apres avoir abondamment arrose les pres de la Maison - Blanche la branche nord passe pres de la Fontaine du Vignal se dirige sur la gare de Gerzat gagne les domaines de Dona - Vigne. Et de la Peghoire, touche au nord de Saint - Beauzire et vient se jeter dans le ruisseau de Menetrol qui coule entre le vil lage et la sucrerie de saint-beamire pres du chemin d'interet commun n 10. C'est cette branche qui seule portait autrefois le nom de Bedat, comme on le voit sur l'ancienne carte de Cassini. Ce n'etait pourtant pas alors la plus importante si l'on en juge par l'etroitesse du lit, l'absence de berges et la faible profondeur des eaux.

This volume surveys 150 law books of fundamental importance in the history of Western legal literature and culture. The entries are organized in three sections: the first dealing with the transitional period of fifteenth-century editions of medieval authorities, the second spanning the early modern period from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century, and the third focusing on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The contributors are scholars from all over the world. Each ‘old book’ is analyzed by a recognized specialist in the specific field of interest. Individual entries give a short biography of the author and discuss the significance of the works in the time and setting of their publication, and in their broader influence on the development of law worldwide. Introductory essays explore the development of Western legal traditions, especially the influence of the English common law, and of Roman and canon law on legal writers, and the borrowings and interaction between them. The book goes beyond the study of institutions and traditions of individual countries to chart a broader perspective on the transmission of legal concepts across legal, political, and geographical boundaries. Examining the branches of this genealogical tree of books makes clear their pervasive influence on modern legal systems, including attempts at rationalizing custom or creating new hybrid systems by transplanting Western legal concepts into other jurisdictions.

This 1982 book is a history of the great age of scholastism from Abelard to the rejection of Aristotelianism in the Renaissance, combining the highest standards of medieval scholarship with a respect for the interests and insights of contemporary philosophers, particularly those working in the analytic tradition. The volume follows on chronologically from The Cambridge History of Later Greek and Early Medieval Philosophy, though it does not continue the histories of Greek and Islamic philosophy but concentrates on the Latin Christian West. Unlike other histories of medieval philosophy that divide the subject matter by individual thinkers, it emphasises the parts of more historical and theological interest. This volume is organised by those topics in which recent philosophy has made the greatest progress.
