Köln: bey der heilischen Buchhandlung, 1810. Third edition completely revised and greatly expanded. Hardcover. Octavo. Original full calf with gold lettering and tooling on spine. All edges red. Marbled endpapers. Walter Reisch's ex-libris on fly leaf. Walter Reisch (1903-1983) was an Austrian-born film director and screenwriter.

Reisch won an Oscar for 1953's screenplay of Titanic. Engraved vignette depicting Napoleon's coat of arms on title page. Fascinating German language edition of The Napoleonic Code — or Code Napoléon (originally, the Code civil des Français) — being the French civil code, established under Napoléon I in 1804. The code forbade privileges based on birth, allowed freedom of religion, and specified that government jobs go to the most qualified. It was drafted rapidly by a commission of four eminent jurists and entered into force on March 21, 1804. The Napoleonic Code was not the first legal code to be established in a European country with a civil legal system — it was preceded by the Codex Maximilianeus bavaricus civilis (Bavaria, 1756), the Allgemeines Landrecht (Prussia, 1794) and the West Galician Code, (Galicia, then part of Austria, 1797). It was, however, the first modern legal code to be adopted with a pan-European scope and it strongly influenced the law of many of the countries formed during and after the Napoleonic Wars. The Code, with its stress on clearly written and accessible law, was a major step in replacing the previous patchwork of feudal laws. Historian Robert Holtman regards it as one of the few documents that have influenced the whole world. Some age-wear on binding with rubbing on spine, covers and along edges. Some abrasion on calf. Gold-tooling and lettering faded on spine. Sporadic and minor foxing throughout. Text in French and German. Binding in overall good-, interior in very good condition. g. Item #27937
