An uncommon dictionary of international law. Originally published: Berlin: Puttkammer & Muhlbrecht [and others], 1885. vii, 475 pp. Reprint of the only edition. With index. Produced for diplomats, this is a one-volume distillation of Calvo's two-volume Dictionnaire de Droit International Public et Prive (1884) with additional material. The entries are rather detailed, often several paragraphs in length. Many entries have cross-references. Carlos [Charles] Calvo [1822-1906] was a distinguished Argentinean diplomat and scholar of international law. His works include the distinguished treatise Derecho Internacional Teorico y Practico de Europa y America (1868), in which he proposed the "Calvo Doctrine" which has been incorporated into several Latin American constitutions and treaties. Translated into French as Le Droit International Theorique et Pratique, it went through four further editions, the last one in 1896.
