De Coulanges original study provided a historical view of how land has become property which was then translated and published in 1891 by M. Ashley, not just to bring this study to an English reader but to provide a counter argument to Agrarian Communism. This edition also contains an introductory chapter on the origin of the manor house in England. This title will be of interest to students of History.
