The library recently subscribed to The Making of Modern Law: Foreign Primary Sources, 1600-1970. This database primarily contains historical native language primary law sources such as codes and regulations as well as some commentaries. The following jurisdictions are covered:
- Great Britain and Northern Ireland
- the Netherlands
The database contains over 1500 titles approximately half of which are in English. The database compliments others in our collection such as The Making of Modern Law: Foreign, Comparative, and International Law, 1600-1926, which contains a large number of pre-1926 legal treatises. These treatises along with the primary law provided in Foreign Primary Sources provide an excellent look at historical foreign law.
