About This Item

Alphabetum Juridicum, Canonicum, Civile, Theoricum, Practicum, Morale, Atque Politicum. Quae in hoc Opere Contineantur, Vocabulorum Elenchus Utrique Volumini Praefixus Indicat. Editio Altera Gallica, Diligentius Recognita et Emendata. Lyon: Sumptibus Anisson, & Posuel, 1720. Two volumes bound as one. [xiv], 449; [xii], 423 pp. Main text in parallel columns.

Gil de Castejon, a member of the Council of the Indies and the Council of Castile, published this important dictionary in 1678. A work of great authority and a well-thumbed reference dealing with Canon, Spanish and Roman law, it went through three subsequent editions. It is a well-documented work that cites numerous authorities, including Classical authors as well as experts on canon and Spanish law. Most of the entries are subdivided into several related topics. In each case Castejon offers a brief definition followed by lists of references that offer more detailed discussion. All editions are scarce. OCLC locates 2 copies of the 1720 French edition in North American law libraries (UC-Berkeley, University of Michigan). Not in Camus. This edition not in the British Museum Catalogue.
