* Pothier was a jurist and legal scholar who specialized in French and Roman law. In the decades that led up to the Civil War, this classic, highly-regarded civil law treatise was required reading for practitioners, scholars, as well as law students. Martin, a printer from New Bern, North Carolina, gained distinction for this translation, which he published in 1802. "The Treatise on Obligations was soon recognized as a major contribution to legal science, translated by Evans and frequently cited in British Courts." Walker 973. Marvin quotes Sir William Jones' introduction of Pothier's Obligations to the bar in England: "For my own part, I am so charmed with them, that if my undissembled fondness for the study of jurisprudence, were never to produce any greater benefit to the public, than barely the introduction of Pothier to the acquaintances of my countrymen, I should think that I had, in some measure, discharged the debt which every man, according to Lord Coke owes to his profession.": Marvin, Legal Bibliography 578.

Book Description Lawbook Exchange, Ltd., United States, 2014. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Translated by Francois-Xavier Martin. Originally published: NewBern, N.C.: Martin Ogden, 1802. 2 vols. in 1 book. xii (iii-xii new introduction), [xii], 364; [ix], 315, [1] pp. With a new introduction by Warren M. Billings, Distinguished Professor of History, Emeritus, University of New Orleans and Bicentennial Historian of the Supreme Court of Louisiana. Reprint of the rare New Bern edition. In the decades before the Civil War this classic treatise was required reading for practitioners, scholars and law students. Martin, an attorney and printer in New Bern, North Carolina, later a distinguished lawyer in Louisiana, gained distinction for this translation. This treatise was an important influence on British and American contract law. Marvin quotes and endorses an assessment by Luther Cushing that includes the following remark by one of Pothier s earlier editors, Andre Dupin: [Pothier on Obligations] is not only a good book of law, but an excellent book on morals; a work of all countries, of all nations; a book, to which antiquity can present to rival but the Offices of Cicero. John Gage Marvin, Legal Bibliography (1847) 578. The Treatise on Obligations was soon recognized as a major contribution to legal science. --David M. Walker, Oxford Companion to Law 973. ROBERT JOSEPH POTHIER [1699-1772] was arguably the greatest French jurist of the eighteenth century. A brilliant scholar, he is renowned for his treatises on Roman law and the various branches of French civil law, which were primary sources for the French Civil Code. FRANCOIS-XAVIER MARTIN [1762-1846], a Frenchborn lawyer, judge, author, translator, printer and historian, is an important figure in the legal history of the south. His career began in North Carolina. He later moved to the Louisiana territory, where he played the central role in the reorganization of its legal system. Appointed attorney-general when Louisiana became a state, he is considered the father of Louisiana jurisprudence. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781886363625
