About FRANÇOIS DOUAREN (from Wikipedia): ******François Douaren (also sometimes spelled Duaren; Franciscus Duarenus; Francisci Duareni) b. 1509 d. 1559,

    was a French jurist and professor of law at the University of Bourges. After studies in Paris under Budé and in Bourges, Douaren worked as an advocate for the Parlement of Paris. In 1538, he was called to teach at Bourges. Following a bitter dispute with Baro, he abandoned the chair for Paris until Baro's death in 1550, after which Douaren returned to teach at Bourges. Like his compatriots Jacques Cujas, François Hotman and Hugues Doneau, Douaren was one of the leading representatives of the legal humanist school of thought within the science of Roman law on the European continent. These 16th century French law professors applied the philological methods of the Italian humanists to legal texts. It was their aim to arrive at a historically more accurate understanding of the texts of the Roman Corpus Iuris Civilis. In addition to numerous commentaries on the Corpus, Douaren wrote a leading commentary on the Roman law of obligations, Commentarius de pactis (1544), which greatly influenced modern theories of obligations. His 1544 programme of studies, De ratione docendi discendique iuris epistola, was the first statement of the mos gallicus, the French Humanist approach to higher education. Its core contents - language studies, introductory classes on the base of the Justinian Code, a methodical approach based on the laws of the Corpus - came to be introduced at most European legal faculties.******

About SIR RICHARD STEELE (from Wikipedia and elsewhere on the Internet): ******Sir Richard Steele (bap. 12 March 1672 - 1 September 1729) was an Irish writer and politician, remembered as co-founder, with his friend Joseph Addison, of the magazine The Spectator. Steele became a Whig Member of Parliament in 1713, for Stockbridge. He was soon expelled for issuing a pamphlet in favor of the Hanoverian succession. When George I of Great Britain came to the throne in the following year, Steele was knighted and given responsibility for the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, London. He returned to parliament in 1715, for Boroughbridge. While at Drury Lane, Steele wrote and directed the sentimental comedy The Conscious Lovers, which was an immediate hit. However, in 1719 Steele found himself in agreement with Lord Oxford regarding The Bill Of Peerage, and wrote: A LETTER TO THE EARL OF O--D, CONCERNING THE BILL OF PEERAGE. This pamphlet and Steele's subsequent speeches caused him to fall out with Addison and, in 1724, he retired to his wife's homeland of Wales, where he spent the remainder of his life.******

SCARCE 1747 TWO VOLUME SET on LAW by the highly influential BOHMER. These tomes would look great on the SHELF of any LAWYER or LEGAL SCHOLAR, or in the bookcase of anyone who appreciates rare, interesting old books! About JUSTUS HENNING BÖHMER (from Wikipedia): ******Justus Henning Böhmer (b. 1674 in Hanover, d. 1749 in Halle) was an outstanding German jurist, ecclesiastical jurist, Professor of the University of Halle; and also Geheimer Rat, Count Palatine and Chancellor of the Duchy of Magdeburg. In the judicial field initially he was a protectionist of the existing "territorial system" or Erastian theory of ecclesiastical government, but in the following years he tended towards the natural right and "Kollegialismus". In his first great work, "Jus Ecclesiasticum Protestantiun" he drew on the traditional Canon Law, but he reformed the law so that it was exempted from rigid orthodoxy, principles, resistance and dogmatism. Affected by the ideas of the Age of Enlightenment he represented an increasing critical and scientific development instead of a religious fundamentalism. Böhmer's legal thinking predominated in Protestantism church law of the 18th century, and was the basis for numerous church reforms yet to be. His results in the domain of civil law were of similar importance. In his next main work "Introductio in Jus Digestorum", a pandects-compendium which was maintained until the 20th century, he liberated the traditional German law from the influence of the old Roman law and thus prepared the basis of "general Landrecht (law code) of the Prussian states". A huge amount of further significant and notable works on civil and church law as well as expertises were penned by him, and were published by his son Georg Ludwig Böhmer after Justus Henning's death in the collected edition "Exercitationes ad Pandectas".****** INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: These two large books are heavy and will require substantial additional shipping charges.

    Three Page Handwritten Draft Letter by a Politically Progressive Texas Man re: Reforming the Texas Republican Party: "I am one of the progressives who is in favor of co-operation with you in trying to restore the Republican Party to its former prestige and usefulness..." The draft letter is written by W. E. Singleton (Captain WILLIAM E. SINGLETON) of Jefferson, Texas, and addressed to "Hon. C. A. Lyon" (Honorable CECIL ANDREW LYON). The draft letter is dated "Jefferson Texas / Feb (17th and 18th), 1916". It is interesting to note that Cecil A. Lyon died two months after this draft was written, and William E. Singleton died within a year after this draft was written. Both deaths marking the end of "Progressive Republicans" in Texas. This draft letter is handwritten, it is the same text written out twice, once in pencil and once in ink, as if in practice for a finished letter that would (presumably) be sent. Three pages written on one side only of three sheets of watermarked laid-paper 5x8". The text is as follows: "I am in receipt of your circular letter of date February 4th (?) and will say: I am one of the progressives who is in favor of co-operation with you in trying to restore the Republican Party to its former prestige and usefulness. I am very much in favor of a conference of the leading Republicans and Progressives to try and adjust their differences and will be glad to meet with you and assist in any capacity in bringing about harmony and party discipline. I am very sincerely yours, W.E. Singleton". POOR condition, thumbprint size chip on the right side of the sheets, lesser chipping at the bottom right corner, all sheets have two horizontal folds from where they were folded to fit into an envelope, one sheet has insect holes all along its upper fold, almost splitting the sheet into two parts, another sheet has some insect holes across its top fold, the chip and holes affect some text, all sheets have some toning and foxing; NONETHELESS, the writing is clear and the text legible. An interesting historic letter regarding PROGRESSIVE REPUBLICANS in TEXAS in the early 20th century. About the PROGRESSIVE REPUBLICAN ERA (from Wikipedia): ******During the 1910s and 1920s, progressives formed a faction in the Republican Party. They typically held center-left views on most issues, supporting broad government involvement in business, particularly breaking 'trusts' and limiting the size of corporations, reforms in government, income taxes, universal health care, and other forms of 'social justice'. This faction gradually shrank, with many joining the Democratic Party as it shifted to the left. Prominent progressive Republicans included Theodore Roosevelt, Hiram Johnson, and Robert La Follette.****** About CECIL ANDREW LYON (from the Texas State Historical Association website): ******On the heels of the Republican convention, when Roosevelt bolted the party to run as the candidate of the National Progressive Republican League, Lyon led the state Progressive convention, which met at Dallas. He served as this party's state chairman and as a national committeeman from 1912 until his death. After Democrat Woodrow Wilson's victory Lyon worked to unify the Republican party in the state. He called for a meeting of reunification that convened in Dallas in March 1915 and served as the first step in healing political wounds. Lyon, however, played only a small role in that reunification, for he died on April 4, 1916. At the time of his death, in addition to his political activities, he was president of the Lyon-Gray Lumber Company, vice president and general manager of the Hardeman County Irrigation Company in Sherman, and a member of the board of directors of the Great Southern Life Insurance Company of Houston.****** The Jefferson Texas Home of CAPTAIN WILLIAM E. SINGLETON is a Historic Landmark.

Some of the latter sheets are written on the blank backsides of paper that is printed with "THE COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS - 1917 - AN ACT" and associated information on the other side (i.e.the original printed documents were being reused as scrap paper for these lecture notes). The lecture notes are undated, insofar as I can tell, but I'm assuming 1917 based on the date on the printed backsides of a few sheets. Along with these lecture notes are 3 sealed envelopes with "HENRY DINGLEY COOLIDGE / CONCORD, MASSACHUSETTS" printed on the envelope flap (the envelopes are sealed, but there is nothing inside, and they are unopened); a piece of unused printed stationery; and a letter addressed to "Mr. Henry D. Coolidge, Clerk to the Senate, Concord, Mass." on "The Commonwealth of Massachusetts / Executive Chamber / State House, Boston" letterhead. The letter is signed by (?). It is in response to a recommendation by Coolidge for the appointment of Henry J. Walcott to some position or other. The letter is dated August 1, 1910. Condition: The sheets are toned and have some signs of light handling, wear and use; but overall they are clean, bright, clear and fully legible. About HENRY DINGLEY COOLIDGE (from the Internet): ******Massachusetts Senate Clerk Henry Dingley Coolidge (1858-1922). Coolidge, a direct descendant of Mayflower pilgrim William White, served as Clerk for the Massachusetts Senate for 33 years. He is known for writing the revised and updated "MANUAL FOR THE USE OF THE GENERAL COURT" in 1889, and a number of subsequent revisions of the same book. Henry D. Coolidge's General Court Manual became an important, standard, widely used. legal reference work.******

Internally, there is a bit of foxing to the endpapers, otherwise the inner pages are tight, bright, clean and unmarked. A solid, very nice copy. About SAMUEL I. ROSENMAN (from Wikipedia): ******Samuel Irving Rosenman (b. 1896 d. 1973) was an American lawyer, judge, Democratic Party activist and presidential speechwriter. He coined the term NEW DEAL, and helped articulate liberal policies during the heyday of the New Deal coalition. He was the first person to hold the position of White House Counsel. Rosenman was a senior advisor to presidents Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman. Under their administrations, he was a leading figure in the war crimes issue. He was also the first official White House Counsel, then called Special Counsel. He was a speechwriter under both presidents, helping Roosevelt with his speeches from his days as governor. Rosenman was responsible for the term "New Deal", a phrase in the conclusion of FDR's acceptance speech at the 1932 Democratic National Convention. While he was not heavily involved in speechwriting during Roosevelt's first term, he started traveling to Washington to help out with important talks during the 1936 campaign and was a key speech aide for the remainder of Roosevelt's life. He submitted his resignation as Special Counsel upon Roosevelt's death but Truman asked him to stay on, initially through V-E Day, then through V-J Day, and finally into 1946. Even after leaving the White House, he would periodically return to aid the president with major speeches, including his acceptance speech to the 1948 Democratic National Convention.****** About EDITH LEHMAN (to whom the book is inscribed): ******Edith Lehman (Edith Louise Lehman) was the wife of Herbert H. Lehman who was the first Jewish Governor of New York and later a Democratic Senator from New York. During his tenure as Senator, Herbert Lehman was one of the most liberal Senators in the Senate. As Governor, he and his wife Edith Lehman, were strong supporters of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Both Herbert and Edith Lehman were major philanthropists, sometimes assisting and accompanying Eleanor Roosevelt in her charity endeavors.****** (An amazing woman. You can find photos of her with Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt on the Internet.)
