First published in England in 1754-1756, this exposition of natural law and De Jure Belli ac Pacis was one of the most important English treatises of the period. Reprinted in America in 1799, it was a standard text here for several decades. As late as 1847, Marvin observed that Rutherforth [1712-1771] was still "considered one of the ablest commentators upon Grotius" because "[h]is work is clearly and logically written, and exhibits great acuteness, sound argument, and learning.": Legal Bibliography (1847) 625.
