New York: Legal Classics Library, . 27, xxi, 152,  pp. Calf, decorative gilt stamping, gilt edges, raised bands, marbled endpapers, ribbon marker. Fine. $25. * First published in 1673, this influential treatise contains the outline of his theory of natural law, which he expanded in The Law of Nature and Nations (1672). Written during the aftermath of the Thirty Years' War, Pufendorf sets forth a classic justification of the early modern enlightened state and of the proper relations of moral and political subjection to it. His argument had a profound influence on theorists such as Locke, Hutcheson, Hume, Rousseau, and Smith and the American founding fathers.
