Notes

  • Scope and Contents

    So much has been lost that an accurate arrangement of the fragments is impossible.

    The folder also contains isolated folios whose proper position could not be found, together with some which, although in Wilde`s hand, do not seem to belong to these lectures (folio 116).

  • Bibliography

    The version of 1793 with some changes was published as ‘Preliminary Lecture to the Course of Lectures on the Institutions of Justinian’ by John Wilde (Edinburgh, 1794).
