This chapter discusses the English translation of the first chapter of Pierre Lepaulle's 1932 book Traité théorique et pratique des trusts en droit interne, en droit fiscal et en droit international (A Theoretical and Practical Treatise on Trusts in Municipal Law, Tax Law, and International Law). The book articulates Lepaulle's vision of the common law trust as an affected patrimony. His goal was to explain the common law trust to a civilian audience, using the vocabulary and the conceptual tools of the civil law in its French manifestation. The chapter first provides a background on the translation project, which involved appropriating Lepaulle, and the author before presenting the translation. It emphasises the significance of Lepaulle's work to the notions of trust and patrimony as well as to civil law in French and to private law more generally, including the common law.
