Vade mecum means "walk with me" or "go with me."

This phrase is often used for something that you keep with you or carry around as a reference.

In Latin "vade" means "go" and "mecum" "with me". So the expression "go with me". It is used to name a conjunct of the main or basic books of the same area, e.g. : "LAW VADE MECUM": contains the Constituition, the Civil Code, Penal Code etc.I don't know what is the relation between the expression itself and the meaning it expresses.
