About this Item

With Two Important Essays on International Law Bynkershoek, Cornelius van [1673-1743]. Opera Minora, Olim Separatim, Nunc Conjunctim Edita. Recensuit et Nonnulla Addidit Auctor. Indicem Operum Exhibet Pagina, Quae Generalem Praefationem Excipit. Leiden: Apud Samuelam Luchtmans et Filios, 1752. [xvi], 571, [23] pp. Quarto (8" x 6"). Contemporary vellum, early hand-lettered title to spine, small shelf label to foot of spine. Some shelfwear and light soiling, boards slightly bowed. Title page with copperplate vignette printed in red and black, woodcut initials. Interior notably fresh. A handsome copy of an important title. $350. * Second, final and best edition. (The first edition was reissued in 1744.) Bynkershoek was a Dutch jurist who founded the positive school of international law, which held that usage and practice were more important than deductions drawn from natural law. He was also the first to propose the "three-mile limit" rule, which states that a nation may claim sovereignty over territorial waters to a distance of three miles from shore. Respected during his lifetime, his works are still consulted today. This collection of "minor works" actually contains two of his most important essays: "Dissertation de Domino Maris (Dissertation on the Sovereignty of the Sea)" and "De Foro Legatorum, Tam in Causa Civili, Quam Criminali (On the Jurisdiction Over Ambassadors in Both Civil and Criminal Cases)." The other five essays address aspects of Roman and Dutch law. Dekkers, Bibliotheca Belgica Juridica 15 (15). Bookseller Inventory # 51753
