This study of Roman legal institutions was published posthumously: "Pollet studied law at Leuven University and for a number of years became a lecturer in law at the University of Paris. He was then called to the bar, and returned to his native Douai, where he married and maintained a legal practice. He died young, leaving the incomplete manuscript. ... His work was later edited and put into print by his son-in-law, Philippe Brode, a member of the city council of Douai." [Wikipedia] First Edition.
