We appreciate the kind interest in the exhibit of Roman Law books shown by Dr. Otto Vervaart. Recently, Dr. Vervaart wrote to the Law Library to question our exhibit entry regarding the Joannes Ferrarius volume, Adnotationes in III. Institutionum Iustiniani Libros. Dr. Vervaart correctly identified this volume as being printed in Lyon, not in Leiden as our exhibit entry stated. We have made this correction and are grateful to Dr. Vervaart for his close inspection of the exhibit documentation. It is a wonderful experience to witness the attention and depth of interest expressed by legal scholars in this exhibit. And, of course, we are very grateful to Professor Michael Hoeflich for the generous donation of his Roman Law collection on which the exhibit is based.
