Pothier, Robert Joseph [1699-1772]. Treatise on the Contract of Sale. Translated From the French by L.S. Cushing. Boston: Charles C. Little and James Brown, 1839. Reprint. [New York: The Legal Classics Library, 1988]. xvi, 406 pp. Calf, decorative gilt stamping, raised bands, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers, ribbon marker. Fine. $45. * Arguably the greatest French jurist of the eighteenth century, Pothier devoted much of his career to the study of French civil law and its relation to natural and Roman law. A brilliant and prolific scholar, he wrote a long series of treatises on all of its branches. Distinguished by their clarity and organization, they had a profound influence on the Code Napoleon. The present treatise addresses sale as a form of contract. Other volumes discuss leases, partnership, possession and other topics. This edition is a reprint of the first American edition, which was translated by Luther Stearns Cushing, who lectured on Roman law at Harvard.
