Domat, Jean [1625-1696]. The Civil Law in its Natural Order: Together with the Publick Law. Written in French by Monsieur Domat, The Late French King's Advocate in the Presidial Court of Clermont in France: And Translated into English by William Strahan, LL.D. Advocate in Doctor's Commons. With Additional Remarks on Some Material Differences between the Civil Law and the Law of England.
Originally published: London: Printed by J. Bettenham for E. Bell [et al.], 1722. 2 Vols. Folio (9" x 13"). First complete edition in English. Domat's Civil Law is a great work that combines the materials of Roman and French law into a single system and places it on a foundation of ethical principles.
Holdsworth says this edition is better than Wood's incomplete 1705 translation. "Strahan's translation...is a very much more considerable book, both as a book on Roman law, and, by reason of the translator's notes, as a book on comparative law.": William Holdsworth, History of English Law XII:428.

Text: English, French (translation)Review:
The Civil Law in its Natural Order, considering the age and the circumstances in which it was written, is a truly wonderful performance. His method is excellent, and his matter clear, exact, and comprehensive. Pothier, and other continental jurists, have drawn largely upon him to assist their own labors. --J. G. Marvin, Legal Bibliography (1847) 271
