$Baron de MONTESQUIEU$ $THE SPIRIT OF THE LAWS [1748] transl. by T. Nugent (1750)$ $Author's preface, introd. notes, and text of Book I, chs. 1-13$ $Some author's footnotes (sq. brackets in text)$ $Emphasis (italics) in curly brackets$ $For an overall definition of types of law, see also Volume II, Books 26 and 29$ <1.01> PREFACE If amidst the infinite number of subjects contained in this book there is anything which, contrary to my expectation, may possibly offend, I can at least assure the public that it was not inserted with an ill intention - for I am not naturally of a captious temper. Plato thanked the gods that he was born in the same age with Socrates; and for my part I give thanks to the Supreme that I was born a subject of that government under which I live, and that it is His pleasure I should obey those whom He has made me love. I beg one favour of my readers, which I fear will not be granted me; this is, that they will not judge by a few hours' read . . .
