Abstract The etymology of the word code is most interesting. It seems evident that in its original form it has reference to the paginated format of a book as distinguished from the earlier scrolls. Books with leaves fastened together at a common edge were apparently used in Roman times to record compilations of laws, and this is the basis for the original meanings of code, as a systematic collection, compilation, or formulation of laws, principles, rules or regulations.
