Savigny, Frederick Charles von. Of the Vocation of Our Age for Legislation and Jurisprudence. Translated by Abraham Hayward. Originally published: London: Littlewood, [1831]. ix, [9]-192 pp. Reprint. [The Legal Classics Library, 1986] Calf, decorative gilt stamping, raised bands, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers, ribbon marker. New. $45. * Written in the wake of the Napoleonic Wars and the Congress of Vienna, the Vocation proposed a common legal code for the newly liberated German states, and attacked Thibaut's advocacy of a code based on natural law. Though he aimed in part to improve the administration of justice, von Savigny [1779-1861] hoped that a common legal system would serve a larger goal: the promotion of a spirit of unity among Germans.
