* First edition. Montvallon was a notable jurist, scholar and counselor of the parlement of Aix-en-Provence. His Traite des Successions organizes the laws of
inheritance and succession according to principles of Roman law revised to conform with contemporary royal edicts. It is an impressive feat of synthesis. A
second edition was published in 1786. Both are scarce. OCLC locates 5 copies of the first edition in North America, 3 in law libraries (George Washington
University, Harvard, UC-Berkeley), none of the second. Camus, Bibliotheque Choisie des Livres de Droit 1536.

* First edition. Organized alphabetically, this guide to French law and judicial administration is a curious hybrid of encyclopedia, treatise and reform tract.
As the title indicates, it outlines different jurisdictions in order to advance an argument for a comprehensive uniform court system. The "questions" relate,
for the most part, to tricky aspects of family law. Some of the topics its covers are the marriage of wives of absent husbands, dowries, bastards, the passing on
of jewelry, the marriage of minors, second marriages, subrogation, wills, and wards. Bretonnier was an avocat of the Paris Parlement. First published in 1718,
his treatise went through five editions, the final appearing in 1783. All are scarce in North America. OCLC locates 3 copies of the first edition in North
America, 2 in law libraries (Harvard, University of Michigan). This edition not in Camus.
Two of Bynkershoek's Most Important Works
6. Bynkershoek, Cornelius van [1673-1743].
Conradi, Franz Karl [1701-1748], Editor.
Opuscula Varii Argumenti, Nunc Primum Collecta Atque in Duos Tomos Distributa. Cum Praefatione D. Francisci Caroli Conradi. Halle:
Sumtibus Ern. Gottl. Crugii, 1729. Two volumes. [iv], 5-28, [6], [5]-424, [24]; [ii], 3-407, [29] pp.
[Bound with]
Bynkershoek, Cornelius van.
Heineccius, Johann Gottlieb [1681-1741].
Observationum Juris Romani Libri Quatuor. In Quibus Plurima Juris Civilis Aliorunque Auctiorum Loca Explicantur & Emendantur. Frankfurt:
Apud Ernest. Gottl. Krugium, 1723. [xlix], 446, [30] pp.
Quarto (8" x 6-1/2"). Contemporary vellum, early hand-lettered title to spine, edges rouged. Light rubbing and soiling, small vertical tear to
head of spine, vellum beginning to crack through pastedowns. Title pages of Opuscula, Volume I, and Observationum printed in red and
black, woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Light toning to text, somewhat darker in places. Early owner annotations in
tiny hand to front free endpaper, interior otherwise clean. Ex-library. Shelf-label residue to spine, small inkstamps to title page and verso. A
nice copy. $650.
* Later editions. Bynkershoek was a renowned Dutch jurist who founded the positive school of international law, which held that usage and practice were
more important than doctrines drawn from natural law. His works are still consulted today. First published in 1719, Opuscula, an essay collection on Roman
law, addresses topics in maritime and international relations, the legal rights of unwanted and abandoned children, abortion and infanticide. The essays on
children reflect Bynkershoek's debate on this topic with his distinguished contemporary Gerard Noodt [1647-1725]. The notoriety of this exchange, which
became acrid and lasted several years, did much to promote their circulation. First published in 1710, Observationum, a summation of his studies on Roman
civil and criminal law, was a standard reference in Dutch universities until the nineteenth century. Heineccius, the editor of the present edition, was a
prominent German jurist and a professor of jurisprudence and philosophy at Halle. A companion volume was issued in 1733. "Bynkershoek was
undoubtedly a man of rare intellectual attainments and a great force of character (,) [a] very great authority on the law of Holland and on Roman law.":

Rare Seventeenth-Century Treatise on Remedies

Canonicae, Quam Civiles, Criminales Quoq[ue]; & Alique Theologicae, Ex Ipsis Legum, Canonum, Bullarum, Statutorum; Ac Constitutionum
Fontibus Exhaustae, Necnon Indicati Consignantur Complures Casus Conciliares, Quatenus in Subsidium Dumtaxat Prodita Remedia Utrinque

Sententiarum Fatis Copioso Iuxta Seriem Alphabeticam Disposito. Pavia: Ex Typographia Petri Bartoli, 1608. [lxxx] 365, [2] pp. Main text in
parallel columns. Copperplate portrait (to verso of title page). Folio (12" x 8").
Contemporary limp vellum with lapped edges, early hand-lettered title to spine, ties lacking. Light rubbing to extremities, faint staining to
boards, minor worming to hinges and pastedowns. Title page, with large copperplate arms, printed in red and black, woodcut head-pieces,
tail-pieces and decorated initials. Moderate toning to text, somewhat heavier on places, faint dampstaining to preliminaries and a few other
leaves, early owner signature partially excised from foot of title page, internally clean. $950.
* First edition. This treatise deals with civil and criminal remedies in Roman, canon and feudal law. Little is known about Costa. The title page identifies him
as a highly placed canon lawyer attached to the Vatican. The presence of a portrait frontispiece, with a cartouche bearing his arms, indicates that he was an
important man. Costa is not to be confused with the French jurist Jean Lacoste (de la Coste) [1560-1637]. Costa's treatise went thought two later editions
in 1629 and 1630. All three are rare. OCLC locates 2 copies in North America, both 1629 editions (at the Library of Congress and UC-Berkeley Law
School). Not in Camus, Roberts or the British Museum Catalogue.

* Later edition. Covarrubias y Leyva, Archbishop of Santa Domingo, later Bishop of Ciudad Rodrigo and of Segovia, was a canonist, theologian and leader of
the Salamanca School. One of the foremost jurists of his time, he was called the "Bartolus Hispanus." Opera Omnia, the definitive collection of his work on
Roman and canon law was first published in 1559 and went through numerous editions into the eighteenth century. Roberts says it was an important
authority among Roman-Dutch jurists. Our edition is notable for its editorial contributions by Brederode, the notable Dutch jurist and diplomat. All
editions are scarce in North America. OCLC locates 2 of the 1614 edition in North American law libraries (Columbia, Harvard). Roberts, A South African
Legal Bibliography 97 (citing other editions).

Rare Eighteenth-Century Treatise on Military Law
Bound With an Annotated Constitutio Criminalis Carolina
11. Dolffer, J[ohann] A[nton].
Processus Juris Militaris Informativus. Worinn Nicht nur alle Kriegs-Richter, Als Praesides, Assessores und Auditores, Auch Alle Hohe und Niedrige
Officirer, Eine Vorhin noch nie Gehabte Voellige Information Finden, Wie sie Sich zu Denen Abhaltenden Kriegs-Gerichten, Habilitiren und
Geschickt Machen Mogen, Und sonst ein Jeder, Der Peinliche Sachen Tractiret oder zu Tractiren Bedacht Ist, In Denen Latere Sequenti
Verzeichneten Materiis den Selbst Verlangenden Unterricht Finden Kan. Leipzig: In Verlegung Hieron. Friederich Hoffmann 1702. [iv], 315 pp.
[Bound with]
Stephani, Matthaeus [1576-1646], Editor.
[Charles V [1500-1558], Holy Roman Emperor].
Caroli Quinti, Imperatoris Invictissimi, & Gloriosissimi Principis, Constitutiones Publicorum Judiciorum: Cum Jure Communi Collatae; Ex Eoque
Latius Declaratae, & Utilissimis Additionibus, Observationibusque Practicis Illustratae. Articulorum Carolinarum Constitutionum, Intemq[ue]
Rerum Praecipuarum, Elenchus Duplex Adjectus Est. Hannover: Sumptibus Gothofredi Freytagii, u. Rudolstadt, Urban 1702. [xx], 243, [5] pp.
Quarto (7-1/2" x 6"). Three-quarter calf over speckled boards, gilt spine with raised bands and lettering piece, edges rouged. Moderate
rubbing to boards, light rubbing to extremities with some wear to spine and corners, edge of lettering piece just beginning to peal away. Title
page of Processus printed in red and black. Moderate toning, somewhat heavier in places. Early initials to title page of Processus, early
underlining and notes to a few pages in Constitutiones. An appealing volume. $2,500.
* Processus: only edition; Constitutiones: sixth and final edition. The Processus is a comprehensive guide to the laws that apply to European soldiers. It is a
digest of positive law and conventions established by treaty. Each point is illustrated with a case study. The work reflects both the greater destructive power
of eighteenth century armaments and the Enlightenment-inspired movement to civilize the rules of military engagement. "Von der Section und Inspection
des Coerpers," its eleventh chapter, is especially interesting. An early example of medical jurisprudence, it discusses methods to distinguish signs of torture
or other unacceptable deeds on the corpses of soldiers or civilians. Constitutiones, a commentary on the great 1502 Constitutio Criminalis Carolina of Holy
Roman Emperor Charles V, was first published in 1626. A standard work, it went through further editions in 1661, 1665, 1670, 1678 and 1702. The owner
of this copy added a few references in the index concerning the sections on torture. Provisions for the liberal use of torture was one of the most controversial
aspects of this code. There are very few copies of either title in North America. OCLC locates 1 copy of Processes (at Harvard Law School) and a few copies
of Constitutiones, 1 of the 1702 edition (at Harvard Law School). Processus: Verzeichnis der im Deutschen Sprachraum Erschienenen Drucke des 18. Jahrhunderts

Escobar's life and reputation, but Roberts observes that he was cited often by Roman-Dutch jurists of the eighteenth century. Ratiociniis seems to have been
a well-respected work; it went through several editions and imprints throughout Europe into the eighteenth century. OCLC locates three copies of this
edition (two in Spain, one at Harvard Law School). Roberts, A South African Legal Bibliography 115.

* First edition. In the civil and canon law systems of seventeenth-century Europe notaries occupied an important place in the legal hierarchy analogous to a
present-day British solicitor. Ramon's handbook addresses the needs of a canon-law notary in Catalonia. It is an excellent source of information about
notarial practices in that part of Spain. A second edition was published in 1684. Including both edition, OCLC locates 3 copies in North America, 1 in a law
library (Harvard, which has a first edition). Palau, Manual del Librero Hispano-Americano 96728.

* Ratione Juris, first edition; Jure Civitatis, third edition. Huber was a well-known Dutch jurist and professor at the Universities of Franeker, Utrecht and
Leyden. He was also a judge in Friesland and the author of numerous legal works on Roman and Roman-Dutch law including Heedendaagse Rechtsgeleertheyt
(1686), which was later translated as The Jurisprudence of My Time. He was as important in his day as Grotius. Huber's work was renowned for his
humanism and knowledge of life. It remains influential in South African law. Ratione Juris is an essay on legal reasoning. A second edition was published in
1688. First published in 1672, his influential Jure Civitatis examines public law through perspectives drawn from jurisprudence and political science. As one
would expect, Roman, canon and natural-law principles play a leading role. The laws of the Dutch states are also considered, though less extensively.

of Italy before the Italian unification. Apparently a handy reference for state officials, this is a digest of the kingdom's administrative law. The earliest edition
we were able to locate was issued in 1818, updated editions were issued periodically. All are rare. OCLC locates no copies of our edition, and one copy of
issues from 1818 and 1821, neither in North America. Not in the British Museum Catalogue.

* Fourteenth edition. One of numerous editions of this long standard work on practice, its durability as a modernized text owing to the editorial efforts of
Francois Lange and his successors. The first edition under Lange's name appeared in 1681, but Lange is said also to have prepared four editions prior to the
ordonnances of 1667 and 1670, in which he revised the work of Gastier, whose lineage in turn can be traced to 16th and early 17th century texts by several
earlier authors. Under various editors Lange's Practice reached a 15th edition by 1755. Camus, Bibliotheque Choisie des Livres de Droit 1691.

dating back to the thirteenth century. The fruit of seven successive over a 22-year period, it attracted a good deal of positive attention and was translated
into English, Latin, German and Russian. It was the basis of the nearly identical Norwegian Code of 1687, which also applied to Norway's dependencies: the
Faroe Islands, Iceland, and Greenland. (Leth's Register is a companion to the Danske Lov. Primarily a comprehensive index, it also contains crossreferences and additional citations to later legislation. OCLC locates 5 copies, all in Denmark. Not in the British Museum Catalogue.

* Third and final edition. Sichard, or Sichardt, was a notable German humanist and professor of law at the University of Tubingen. A pupil and protege of
Ulrich Zasius, he was an outstanding editor and interpreter of Roman law. Sichardus Redivivus is based on his celebrated lectures on the Code of Justinian,
one of the four components of the Corpus Juris Civilis. First published in 1565, this lavishly produced edition indicates the importance of Sichard's lectures
and his high posthumous reputation. Few copies of any edition are held in North American law libraries; OCLC locates no copies of the third. Das
