Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England (ca. 1758) was for two centuries the basis for teaching the principles of English (and American) law. Although written almost a century after Pepys began his diary, it is profocundly historical in nature, tracing legal practices back to Anglo-Saxon times. It is especially strong on the rights of indivisuals and the rights of property.
