About this Item

Quarto. [26], 1180, [52]pp (Vol. I), [6], 1288, [70]pp (Vol. II.(1), Vol. II.(2)). Contemporary full calf, with gold lettering and ruling to spines. Raised bands. Decorative paper edges. Engraved frontispiece portrait of the author in first volume. Three title pages (one for the first volume and two for the second (Part 1 and Part 2)). Decorative head-, tailpieces, and initials. Originally published in Amsterdam and Paris between 1641 and 1650, "Annotationes in Novum Testamentum" (Annotations on the New Testament) reveals Grotius' plea for an undogmatic Christian faith. Indeed, the author's aim in publishing this work was to promote the unity of the Christian churches in the spirit of the early Christian Church, when such unity, according to him at least, still existed. In blatant contravention of Reformed doctrine, Hugo Grotius emphasizes the importance of oral tradition as a supplement to, but on the same level as, written sources, in doing so, he makes a distinction between the law of nature from the precepts and admonitions to Christians. This 3-vol. set bound in two is divided as followed:- Volume I (1755): Quatuor Evangelia et explicationem decalogi continens.- Volume II: Part I (1756). Acta Apostolorum, et Paulli Epistolas ad Romanos, Corinthios, Galatas, Ephesios, Philippenses, et Colossenses complectens; Part II (1757). Epistolas Paulli ad Thessalonicenses, Timotheum, Titum, Philemonem, Hebraeos, Porro Epistolas Iacobi, Petri, Ioannis, Iudae, et Ioannis Apocalypsin complectens.Moderate rubbing to bindings. Some chipping to head and tail of spines. Ex-library copy, with book plate and contemporary inscription on inside of each front cover, and stamps (Melanchtonhaus) on fly leaves and the first two title pages. Sporadic contemporary marginalia. Text in Latin. Bindings in overall good-, interior in good+ to very good condition. About the author: Hugo Grotius (1583-1645) was a Dutch jurist and scholar whose masterpiece "De Jure Belli ac Pacis" (1625: On the Law of War and Peace) is considered one of the greatest contributions to the development of international law. Also a statesman and diplomat, Grotius has been called the "father of international law.". Bookseller Inventory # 40002
