Collects two works by the prolific Dutch scholar and Roman historian, Pieter Burmann. The first deals with a Roman tax called the "vectigal", which was applied to revenue "derived from public land, mines, salt-works. etc., and in general to rents derived from State property." - Oxford Classical Dictionary (1949).
