A Practical Treatise on the Law of Nations, Relative to the Legal
1812. Joseph Chitty on the Law of Nations Chitty, Joseph [1776-1841]. A Practical Treatise on the Law of Nations, Relative to the Legal Effect of War on the Commerce of Belligerents and Neutrals; And Orders in Council and Licences. London: Printed for W. Clarke and Sons, 1812. xii, 296 pp. Octavo (8-1/2"x 5-1/2"). Original publisher boards, rebacked retaining original spine and printed paper title label, untrimmed edges. Some rubbing and faint stains to boards, some abraded and somewhat darkened. Toning, occasional browning and foxing to text, internally clean. * Only edition. Chitty was one of the most wide-ranging and prolific legal writers of the nineteenth-century. This treatise and an edition of Beawes's Lex Mercatoria (1813) were his two contributions to international law. Marvin's Legal Bibliography (1847), though critical of the Practical Treatise, finds merit in its digest of Sir William Scott's judgments in prize cases (190). It is also interesting because it summarizes the British view of wartime commerce at the outbreak of the War of 1812, a point Chitty makes in the Preface. Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 2:63.
