Стр. 139 - ... eliguntur in iisdem conciliis et principes, qui iura per pagos vicosque reddunt; centeni singulis ex plebe comites consilium simul et auctoritas adsunt.
Стр. 518 - ... and with elders, and also with various other trees, and with stones, and with many various delusions, with which men do much of what they should not.
Стр. 82 - Labour hath glow'd within : her silver brow, That never tasted a rough winter's blast Without a mask or fan, doth with a grace Defy cold winter, and his storms outface.
Стр. 185 - Hiis autem magis placuit totam insulam vastare, et de bonis illius ditari, et sic ad propria reverti. Godredus autem paucis qui secum remanserunt de insulanis australem partem insulae, et reliquiis Mannensium aquilonarem tali pacto concessit, ut nemo eorum aliquando auderet iure haereditario sibi aliquam partem terrae usurpare.

Стр. 470 - It is more than one could now undertake to do, without such local co-operation as is not to be expected in England as yet, but I am certain that the ancient Marks might still be traced. In looking over a good county map we are surprised by seeing the systematic succession of places ending in -den, -holt, -wood, -hurst, -fold, and other words which invariably denote forests and outlying pastures in the woods. These are all in the Mark, and within them we may trace with equal certainty, the -hams,...
