Excerpt from The Origin of Property in Land

April, 1889» It seemed especially suitable for translation'; since it presented in a comparatively brief compass all the main arguments of that great historian against the various attempts which have been made to support the theory Of primitive agrarian communism by an appeal to historical records. The translation has been made with the consent of Madame Fustel de Coulanges; and it has benefited by the suggestions of M. Guiraud, an old pupil of the author, and now Charge de Cours at the Sorbonne. The presentation of the Essay in an English dress has been deemed a suitable occasion to estimate the bearing of its arguments on early English social history, and to review in the light of it the evidence now accessible as to the origin of the English manor.
