It is an indispensible reference for research into eighteenth-century Feudal, Cameral, Saxon and Holy Roman Law. The first edition was printed in 1721. Seven reissues and editions followed, the last in 1753. All are scarce. OCLC locates 8 copies of the 1726 reissue, 1 in North America (UT-Austin Law School). Not in VD18.
