About this Item

Groundwork for Grotius? De jure belli ac pacis (On the Law of War and Peace) was laid in the 16th century by Spanish theologians Francisco de Vitoria, Francisco Suarez, Bartolom? de las Casas, and Gin?s de Sepulveda as they struggled with the legitimacy of making war on the Indians of the New World. Grotius saw his book published for the first time in 1625 at Paris: It studies the legality of war and immediately established itself as a foundational work on the topic. Modern scholars regard it as foundational in international law. This edition contains added scholarship from Joannes Fredericus Gronovius (1611?71) and Jean Barbeyrac (1674?1744). In addition to De jure belli ac pacis the reader will find two other important Grotius tracts at the rear of the volume: Mare liberum and Libellus singularis de aequitate, indulgentia et facilitate, meaning the volume treats not just of law of war, but natural law, international law, maritime law, and law of the sea. There are two issues of this edition, the other having ?Ex Officina Wetsteniana? on the title-page in place of ?Apud Janssonio-Waesbergio.? In both editions the title-page is printed in black and red, and of course, they have the same pagination. The work has side- and shouldernotes, an engraved portrait of Grotius, and an added engraved title-page. 8vo (20 cm; 8"). Frontis., engr. title-page, [13] ff., xxxv, [1] pp., [2] ff., 483, [1] pp., [1] f., [483!]?936 pp.; 43, [1] pp., [42] ff. Meulen & Diermanse (1950 ed), Grotius, 602. Modern quarter claret-colored morocco with gilt-accented raised bands; gilt center device in each spine compartment. Marbled paper sides. Library pressure-stamps on title-page, no other markings; light age-toning and occasional spotting or foxing. A very nice copy with all edges decorated ? more than "speckled," not quite "marbled," definitely attractive. Bookseller Inventory # 26526
