Numbers in square brackets (e.g. ) refer to original page numbers.
Original footnotes were numbered page-by-page, and are collected at the end of
the text. In the text, numbers in slashes (e.g./1/) refer to original footnote
numbers. In the footnote section, a number such as 245/1 refers to (original)
page 245, footnote 1. The footnotes are mostly citations to old English law
reporters and to commentaries by writers such as Ihering, Bracton and
Blackstone. I cannot give a source for decrypting the notation.
There is quite a little Latin and some Greek in the original text. I
have reproduced the Latin. The Greek text is omitted; its place is marked by
the expression [Greek characters]. Italics and diacritical marks such as
accents and cedillas are omitted and unmarked.
Lecture X has two subheads — Successions After Death and
Successions Inter Vivos. Lecture XI is also titled Successions Inter Vivos.
This conforms to the original.
