Notes Third American Edition, from Fifth London Edition. Introduction by Theodore W. Dwight, LL.D., Professor of Municipal Law, Columbia. From the preface to the First Edition: "The chief object of the following pages is to indicate some of the earliest ideas of mankind, as they are reflected in Ancient Law, and to point out the relation of those ideas to modern thought." Original brown cloth binding with gilt spine printing. Previous owner's name on front end page, just a very few instances of a penciled 'tick' mark or word underscored in pencil (easily erased, if desired) and some surface-only rubbing to binding cloth and slight wear to cloth at corners. Otherwise, straight, clean, very tight--great condition, overall.
