We have volumes 1-7 (the complete set of the Digest) plus the final volume of the set, the useful INDEX volume. The DIGESTA is the great compendium of Roman Law compiled in the 6th century. These volumes are often found separately. OCLC records 5 sets of parts 1-7 only. Adams assigns each volume a separate number. Adams J 589-596 and J 614 (the "Index Omnium"). Baudrier Vol. 9, pp. 335-337. 16mo. 8 volumes (see below) bound in 6. A woodcut printer's device on each title-page. All volumes except 1 and 2 are ruled in red throughout. Orig.vellum, gilt ruled and with a gilt ornament on volumes 1 and 2 in a decorative oval design, whereas the other volumes have a griffin ornament. A very attractive set. With the bookplate of "The Skene Library." Note: Unfortunately 1 leaf in Volume 2 of the Digest (pp. 489/490) is defective, about 1/3 of the leaf has been torn away. Bookseller Inventory # 8362
