Though superseded in certain respects by Liebermann'sedition, Schmid's remains important. Its elaborateAntiquarischen Glossar is unsurpassed, and hisinterpretation of certain passes is often better. Comparisonbetween the two is illuminating. "Since the 16th Centuryawakening of interest in the sources of European legalhistory the laws of Anglo-Saxsons have had many editors.(...) While it is now universally recognized thatLiebermann's edition is, on the whole, far superior,scholars can ill afford to neglect the work of Liebermann'sgreat predecessor. Gierke, in private conversation, tookthis view. It is the view of many students of the earlyperiods of English legal history.": Hazeltine, "FelixLiebermann," Law Quarterly Review 42(1926)99.
