This is Book 7 of the trilingual edition and translation (Dutch to English and French) of the Netherlands Civil Code ("Burgerlijk Wetboek"), as it was published in 1990, now sold out and no longer reprinted. Book 7 deals with special (or nominate) contracts, that is contracts for which the Code provides a detailed set of rules in addition to those provided in the general part of obligations (Book 6). In the English translation, special care has been taken to use civil law English, as it is used in Quebec, Scotland, South Africa and Louisiana. It was felt that using civil law terminology will put the common law reader on guard against creating "false friends" between civil law institutions and the more or less corresponding common law ones (such as action for eviction and recovery).
