Presentation inscription from author to Edward Dumbauld to front free endpaper, occasional annotations and check marks. $125. * "The author brings into his discussion the views of European writers and the notions of European jurists sufficiently to give the book something of an independent position among the many treatises on the state. Particularly is the book of interest and aid to students of international law.... Of special significance, it appears to the reviewer, are the discussions of the nature of the state, the presidential republic, the corporate state, the question of judicial significance, and some of the sections on state organs. (...) The book deserves a wide reading.": Charles E. Martin, American Journal of International Law 27 (1933) 392. Dumbauld [1905-1997], an attorney, judge and legal historian, was the author of important studies of Thomas Jefferson and Hugo Grotius.
