Scott, James Brown, Editor. Classics of International Law. Washington, Carnegie Institution, 1911-1950. Reprint. Buffalo: William S. Hein & Co., 1995. Complete set 22 titles, (in 40 books). Tan cloth with black spine lettering. New. $7,900. * This series, which includes the classic works connected with the history and development of international law, was undertaken by the Carnegie Institution of Washington in 1906, at the suggestion of Dr. James Brown Scott, then Solicitor for the Dept. of State, under whose supervision as General Editor the series has been published. On January 1, 1917, the project was transferred to the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. The republication of these classics has been undertaken principally due to the difficulty of procuring the texts in convenient form for scientific study. The text of each author in a language other than English is reproduced photographically, so as to lay the source before the reader without the mistakes which creep into a newly printed text, and is accompanied by an English version made expressly for the series by a competent translator. Introductory material prefaces each book, giving details concerning the author and his work and stating the importance of the texts and its place in international law.
