First Amsterdam edition of ONE OF THE FUNDAMENTAL WORKS OF NATURAL LAW, first published in Lund where Pufendorf (1632-1694), who came from Saxony and had left his war-torn land, took up a professorship of Natural Law in 1670. In De jure naturae Pufendorf built on the ideas of Grotius and defends the idea that the state is a union of individuals who give their individual consent, and that international law is truly international. "It is a complete system of public, private and international law. Against Hobbes's view he contended that the state of nature was one of peace, not war, and he urged the view that international law . . . existed between all nations . . . [a work] of great importance" (David Walker, The Oxford Companion to Law). - Visit our website for additional images and information.
