Tony Honoré: An Additional Personal Note.

Your blogger has already subscribed to the Honoré volume. He has always been fond of pointing out that he graduated from the University of Edinburgh in the same year as Professor Honoré: he with an LLB, Professor Honoré with an LLD honoris causa. A month or so earlier, he had been examined viva voce by Professor Honoré on Roman law, focusing on two essays he had written: one on the technicality of legal language in early Roman law, the other on the theme of the development from stipulatio poenae to clause pénale. As all can imagine, Professor Honoré was gracious, kind and thorough.
