Einleitung ins Rechtsstudium, Germany, c1800.

Handsome German Manuscript on the Sources of Civil Law [Manuscript]. [Germany]. [Einleitung ins Rechtsstudium]. [Germany, c.1790]. [194] pp. Quarto (7-1/2" x 5-3/4"). Contemporary quarter cloth over marbled boards with cloth-reinforced corners, blind, apparently once gilded, fillets, volume number (2) and illegible title to spine, speckled edges. Light rubbing to boards, moderate rubbing to board edges. Light toning to interior, text to rectos and versos in a small, elegant correct-free hand. $1,250. * Neatly written and formatted, with carefully organized chapters and sub-sections marked with Roman numerals, Arabic numerals, and upper and lower-case letters, this manuscript appears to be the final version of a set of lecture notes. We were unable to identify its place and date of composition, but the language, content, orthography, arrangement of material and binding suggest a German university at the end of the eighteenth century. This manuscript records an introductory class on the foundations of contemporary civil law. It begins with a brief chapter on the nature of law and proceeds to longer chapters on broad legal systems, such as natural law, and then to detailed chapters on Roman law and canon law. Overall, it offers a fine perspective on the conceptual framework that guided preliminary courses of legal study in the German states at the end of the eighteenth century.
