Jahrhunderts [Catalog of the Lehnemann Collection : Works about Jurisprudence from the 16th-18th Century] / edited by Ulrich Dingler and Karl Härter. With collaboration of Rolf Gehbauer and a task force from the Max-Planck-Institut für Europäische Rechtsgeschichte. - Frankfurt am Main, 1994. - Parts 1-2 ; 30 cm. - DM 428.00 - (Max-Planck-Institut für Europäische Rechtsgeschichte, Postfach 930227, 60457 Frankfurt)

The Lehnemann collection, comprising nearly 21,000 titles and normally housed at the Stadt- und Universitätsbibliothek Frankfurt, has been on loan to the Max-Planck-Institut für Europaische Rechtsgeschichte since 1987 for an extensive cataloging project. Approximately 16,000 titles are printed jurisprudence dissertations and disputations from the period 1558 to 1801. The other 5,000 titles cover a broad spectrum of texts dealing with academic and university issues, as well as scientific papers and controversies and a large number of general historical texts. The collection was brought together by the Frankfurt lawyer Heinrich Wilhelm Lehnemann (1723-1802). Each record is arranged according the first author. Indexes further enhance access. In addition to the printed version of the catalog, the data will be made available in machine readable format to the Stadt- und Universitätsbibliothek Frankfurt, which is obliged to upload the records to the online union catalog of the state of Hessen.

Die mit "1811" datierten Drucke des ABGB [The Printed Works Dated 1811 from the Austrian Civil Code] / by Otmar Seemann. - Wien : Manz, 1995. - 95 p. ; 25 cm. - ISBN 3-214-02239-3 : öS 420.00

The first edition of the Austrian civil code, Allgemeines Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch from 1811 was an important codification of the laws in Austria. What is not generally known, however, is that numerous editions dated 1811 were published through the year 1909 that included texts that differed, in some cases considerably, from their original form. This work distinguishes the individual editions and supplies their locations, primarily in Austrian libraries, and call numbers. Today, approximately one half of the 1502 paragraphs of the original edition of the ABGB remain in force. [sh/ajs]
