PREFACE

THI

HE purpose of this work is to provide a full exposition of

the rules of International Law which govern the commercial relations of the subjects of neutral and belligerent States.

In treatises which embrace the whole range of International Law it is impracticable to do more than refer to authority in support of the propositions of law that may be advanced; the more limited scope of this work has enabled me to give full quotations from treaties, ordinances, judgments, and the opinions of great jurists; thus the reader is spared the tedious task of continual reference to other books.

It is hoped that this treatise may prove useful not only to the lawyer, but to the shipowner and shipper, and also to that large class of public servants—diplomatists and consuls—who are compelled, many of them in remote parts of the earth, to discharge weighty and responsible functions in the protection of British commerce against the action of belligerents.

Mr. Hugh H. L. Bellot has been associated with me in the preparation of this book to such a degree indeed, that I feel the expression on the title page, which his modesty dictates “assisted by”—inadequately denotes the large part he has taken in its production. It is unnecessary to say that his erudition and large experience as an author of books of law and general literature afford ample assurance of the excellence of his work.

My grateful acknowledgments are also due to Mr. T. Baty, D.C.L., one of the secretaries of the International Law Association, whose repute as a writer on International Law gives peculiar value to the suggestions he has been good enough to make, and the many valuable emendations and additions he has contributed.

With his kind consent I dedicate this work to my Right Honourable friend Mr. Asquith, K.C., M.P., Chancellor of the Exchequer, who, felicitously for the purposes of this dedication, combines the attributes of a great lawyer and a distinguished statesman.
