Summary International and foreign law, including monographs on the laws of foreign jurisdictions. Primarily 19th and early 20th century; also several hundred classics in European international law since the 17th century. "International Law" constitutes the largest category in the archive. It corresponds mainly to the period of MoML: Legal Treatises, 1800-1926, with classics since the seventeenth century, including Gentili, Grotius, Selden, Zouche, Pufendorf, Bijnkershoek, Wolff, Vattel, Martens, Mackintosh, Wheaton, among many others. "Foreign Law" encompasses foreign legal treatises of a variety of countries. Because the term "treatise" is more of a common-law category, the equivalent works in civil-law systems may have other names such as commentaries, encyclopedias, textbooks, monographs, or festschriften. "Comparative Law" compares more than one legal system and includes Ancient, Roman, Jewish Law, and Islamic Law. It recognizes that the roots of English common law will be found in the deep recesses of European history
