Author: HEINECCIUS (JOHANN GOTTLIEB):
Title: Elementa Juris Civilis secundum Ordinem Institutionum. Commoda Auditoribus Methodo adornat a Jo. Gottl. Heineccio, IC. Editio Octava. Emendatior et Indicibus Necessariis Aucta.
Description: Edinburgi, Venales Prostant apud Gordon et Murray. 1780. 8vo (in 4s), 211 x 121 mms., pp. [iv], 418 [419 - 445, 446 blank], contemporary calf, red leather label; end-papers affected by camp, but a good copy with the armorial bookplate of Cuninghame of Lainshaw on the front paste-down end-paper, and the autograph and date "Tho Cuninghame 1780" on the top margin of the recto of the front free end-paper. The provenance is probably that of Thomas Cuninghame, eldest son of the eccentric William Cuninghame, the "Tobacco Lord," who made a fortune in the American colonies between 1748 and 1762, but who was disinherited by his father. Heineccius (1681 - 1741) was one of the most important philosophical jurists of his time, and he treated law as if it were one of the sciences. The first edition of this work was published in Amsterdam in 1731 ESTC N9119 locates copies in Aberdeen, NLS (3), and Dublin Honourable Society of King's Inn in these islands; Library and Archives, Canada; Massachusetts State and Rochester in USA; and Canterbury and State Library of Victoria Down Under.
