William Blackstone: Commentaries on the Laws of England (1765-1769) (284 words)
COMMENTARIES ON THE LAWS OF ENGLAND (1765-1769), by William Blackstone, Esq., Vinerian Professor of Law and Solicitor General to the Queen.
Blackstone's Commentaries was the first organized compendium of English law which served as a model for all legal treatises to follow.

MyJewishLearning.com - Texts: Commentaries on the Talmud (1445 words)
The commentary to tractate Makkot (from 19b) was completed by his student and son‑in‑law, R. Yehudah ben Natan (Rivan) and the commentary to tractate Bava Batra (from 29a) was written in his style by his grandson, R. Shmuel ben Meir (Rashbam).
The commentary of Rashi that is usually printed alongside the Rif (an 11th century work summarizing the halakhic material in the Talmud, by R. Yitzhak Alfassi) is not considered to be accurate and may be based on earlier versions.
Unlike the commentaries of Rashi and Tosafot, the commentary of Rabbenu Hananel is a synopsis of the talmudic discussion and does not explain the text or compare it to other sources.
