Cover lightly bumped, page edges soiled. Else very good. $60. * Reprint of the sole edition. Phillipson [1878-1945] considers methods of terminating wars with and without treaties of peace, methods of negotiation, the drafting of treaties and the nature of treaties of peace. "It would obviously not be useful to attempt here anything like an inventory or abstract of the contents of a book which is not an argumentative treatise but a storehouse of precedents, and whose value depends on the details being ample and fully verified. Enough to say that it will be of the greatest use to diplomatists and publicists at that uncertain date which will be fixed, the sooner the better, by the definite victory of the Allies.": Law Quarterly Review 33 (1917) 100. Coleman Phillipson [1878-1945], a barrister of the Inner Temple, was the editor of Wheaton's Elements of International Law 5th edition (1915) and the author of numerous titles including International Law and the Great War (1915, reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange 2005) and The International Law and Custom of Ancient Greece and Rome (1911).
