This systematic work on the maritime law of Europe, of great influence on the prize laws relating to the legality of the capture of goods and vessels at sea, as well as for the analysis of Rhodian laws and the Consolato del Mare. D.A. Azuni was an Italian jurist and a writer on mercantile law who later became a French citizen and then president of the appeal court at Genoa and judge of the Commercial Court at Cagliari. First published in Italian in 1795-6 (Sistema universale dei principii del diritto marittimo dell'Europa) Azuni's treatise "relates rather to maritime international law, properly so called, than to private maritime jurisprudence... It points out what is always of the highest importance to the diligent inquirer after truth, the sources of information upon maritime jurisprudence... The English translation from the French, by William Johnson is excellent, and his notes show a familiarity and accurate acquaintance with legal and classical antiquities.": Marvin, Legal Bibliography (1847) 82.
