The same is true of most of the law schedules, with the exception of KD, KE, and KF.  Only earlier periods of history are brought out in the "By period" section.  Works on more recent and contemporary legal history are classed with general legal history or with the specific topic in the remainder of the schedule, rather than in the period breakdown of the history of law.

My question regards Table KJ-KKZ1 85-292, history of law. This section 
contains a subdivision, By period. Only one period is covered, KJ-KKZ1 
124-292, medieval and early modern periods (to ca. 1800). (It is noted that 
ancient and early history is covered in KJ.) The next number after 292 in 
the table is 440, where the section on philosophy, jurisprudence, and 
theory of law begins. Is there any intention to add numbers following 292 
to cover post-1800 history?
