New York: Macmillan Company, 1922. Augustus M. Kelley and Rothman Reprints, 1969. lxii, 654 pp. Publisher's maroon cloth hardcover, with gilt lettered spine. As new, excellent condition. $45. * Modern Legal Philosophy Series, vol. XIII. Translation of Les principes philosophiques de l'histoire du droit. Includes bibliographical references. This work "is valuable as an exhibit of a cautious thinker from the field of law, attempting to analyze and to make explicit the background of his legal notions. Those who are interested in the law as a social fact will welcome every such attempt on the part of anyone charged with any part in the legal system. It may encourage lawyers and judges in this country to analyze their "minds in the making" and arrive with Tourtoulon, at a "kindly, scrupulous, and searching scepticism which might well be the best instrument of progress for humanity." Walter B.B. Odenhafer, American Journal of Sociology, Vol. 28, 348.
