Born in Bruges of Spanish descent, the author trained at the college des Trois Langues at Louvain and later in law at Cologne. He traveled in Germany and Italy before settling in France. His itinerant academic career ended with his appointment as professor of law at the University of Louvain in 1585, where he eventually became Rector. - Adams C778

The book was in my mailbox when I got home last night. Wonderful condition for a 40-year-old book. Nice condition in any case. I am very pleased. Thank you. A bit of trivia: You are only the second seller in six years not to tape the pull strip so it canít be used! Congratulations. Take care, and many, many thanks. I was really looking forward to this one, and you didnít disappoint. - G.W.
