With notes and references to English and American cases. Emerigon [1716-1785] was the leading French authority on commercial law. His work was held in the highest regard by English and American jurists. James Kent observed that "no subject in Emerigon is discussed without being exhausted." Lord Ellenborough said he was an "unrivalled" theorist and practical writer. This treatise on bottomry and respondentia is a useful companion to his treatises on maritime law and maritime insurance.
