Water, Paper, Law

In my latest video, an eighteenth-century Italian legal treatise about water inspires some thoughts about law, rare books, and the passage of time. The video is part of a series I’m developing about rare law books. You can view the video here:

Small Blank Space

I’ve also posted the video on my new channel on Vimeo, to which I’ll be posting all my videos in the future.

  1. I’d love to hear more about the other treatises, as well!


  2. Thanks, David! One of the things I was doing in this video was thinking about ways to film rare books—how to do it in technical terms, but also the reasons behind certain shots—and now that I have some basic principles down in my mind, I’m hoping to make a series of videos about various rare books (including some more of these great water law treatises). Thanks for your support!
