Quarto. XLVI, 946pp. Original green cloth with gold lettering and printer's device on spine. "De jure belli ac pacis libri tres" (On the Law of War and Peace: Three books) was first published in 1625, dedicated to Grotius' current patron, Louis XIII. The treatise advances a system of principles of natural law, which are held to be binding on all people and nations regardless of local custom. The arguments of this work constitute a theory of Just War. Roughly, the second book takes up questions of jus ad bellum (justice in the resort to war) and the third, questions of jus in bello (justice in the conduct of war). The way that Grotius conceived of these matters had, together with Francisco de Vitoria's De potestate civili, a profound influence on the tradition after him and on the later formulation of international law. Spine alightly age-toned. Binding in overall good+ to very good, interior in very good condition. Bookseller Inventory #
