Paris: Societe Anonyme du Recueil Sirey, 1926. 54 pp. Pamphlet in stiff printed wrappers, publisher advertisements to rear wrapper, bound in later quarter cloth over marbled boards, hand-lettered title label to spine. Light fading to boards, which are slightly bowed, light rubbing to extremities, later bookplate (of R.W. Hunt, "Keeper of the Western MSS Bodleian Library") to front pastedown, moderate toning, internally clean, early owner signature (F. Schulz Bonn 1928) to title page. $150. * Only edition. Senn was an important legal historian and jurist with an interest in Roman law and its reception. An expanded version of a lecture given the previous year, this work discusses the origin of the idea of jurisprudence with particular attention to Roman and Greek legal and political philosophy. Our copy was likely owned by the jurist Fritz Schulz [1879-1957], a leading twentieth-century German scholar of Roman law forced to leave the academy and, eventually, Germany itself by the Nazis.
