One of two issues published simultaneously in Amsterdam, by Blaeu, and London, of an edition dedicated to Charles II of England. The editor Pieter de Groot, son of the author, had intended to publish the complete works of his father but died in 1678 before completing the project.Grotius's principal religious work was De veritate religionis christianae, which was intended as a practical guide for missionaries and became a standard work. In his Annotationes in vetus et novum testamentum, which occupy the first two volumes of the present edition, Grotius adopted an innovative method of philological criticism." - Sotheby's 25 October 2006 Sale This is an oversized or heavy book that requires additional postage for international delivery outside of Canada and the US.
