...retention of title A seller’s condition reserving the ownership of goods that have been physically handed over to the buyer. Retention of title is a necessary part of the jus disponendi ( right of disposal of goods). In a sale of goods, if delivery is unconditional , physical possession of goods and title to the goods pass together. For example in a standard retail sale the customer pays for the goods and carries them away as owner. Title passes along with delivery. But a seller may hand over the goods conditionally , retaining the title until the...

...million students in a population of 20 million at the end of the century. The growth of higher education was a major factor in the development of Australian publishing, in particular during the 1960s and 1970s , as income from textbooks gave publishers scope to risk promoting less commercial works—poetry in particular—that they considered culturally important. A precondition for the growth of tertiary education was increasing retention rates in secondary schools. F. W. Cheshire in Melbourne and the Jacaranda Press in Brisbane specialized in secondary-school...

...compensate for nutritional deficits caused by the erosion of their customary rights and their changing role as wage labourers [ see *slavery, 6 ]. Within Britain, the attack on the community's rights to its environment, backed up by the military, is linked to the perceived growth of crime in the city. In London, the punishment as legal crimes of what had recently been social customs (for example, the retention by shipwrights of ‘chips’ or waste timber), in order to increase productivity, reveals economic motives which often underlay various supposedly...

..., the growing association of wells with particular saints—especially whether or not these were linked to churchyards—in fact left open the retention of personal beliefs in whatever may have been seen to lie behind their assumed curative properties, for example (see James Rattue , The Living Stream: Holy Wells in Historical Context (1995) ). The crying need for solutions to disease or physical handicaps, indeed, suffused the medieval belief system with its emphases on semi‐sacred, semi‐magical charms, and the tangible efficacy of saintly relics whether in...

Saluted Augustus by his troops ( see augustus, augusta, as titles ), he was the first Roman emperor who was not a senator. He ended Caracalla's Parthian War , but his subsequent retrenchments in pay and the retention of the European legions in Syria made the army regret the death of Caracalla. Through the agency of Iulia Maesa the story was put about that her grandson Bassianus was Caracalla's natural son. The soldiers of Legio III Gallica ( see ...

...and his own enterprise, which included ownership of fourteen ships. He became Lord Howard in 1470 , but Edward excluded him from the Mowbray inheritance by a parliamentary Act of dubious legality; this allowed its retention by the king’s younger son Richard, in right of his late wife, sole heiress of the 4th duke. In 1483 Howard supported the usurpation of Richard III , who created him duke of Norfolk; that the title was at the king’s disposal suggests that Prince Richard had died in the Tower of London, of which Howard was constable.

Most medieval compilations of recipes contained a certain amount of ‘dead wood’, because the processes of compiling and copying led naturally to the retention of at least some obsolete material from earlier times. Guy de Montigny, in contrast, was patently selecting for his youthful bride precisely those recipes which he expected to be used in his own house in the immediate future. By looking at the nature of the dishes he...
