First Edition of Vols. II, IV, V-XIII; Second Edition of Vols. II & III; Third Edition of Volume V. "[D'Aguesseau] was one of the most distinguished chancellors who flourished under the French system of parlements.As a magistrate he banished corruption from the tribunals; he was responsible for improving the forms and uniformity of procedure; he was influential in ascertaining more accurately jurisdictional limits. It was, however, through his 'grandes ordonnances' that he left his most permanent marks upon French jurisprudence. He took up in detail the great draft of Lamoignon.[and] is said to have written in advance entire chapters fo the future 'Code Napoléon'. the most important of the ordonnances which he drafted may be said to be those on gifts (1731), wills (1735) and entails (1747). His work thus marks an epoch in French jurisprudence.". (Encyc. of Social Sciences) The collected works contain numerous commentaries and letters on French law, theological and philosophical essays, a biography of his father and a lengthy treatise on money, Considérations Sur Les Monnoies, Et Mémoires Sur La Compagnie Des Indes. Camus-Dupin 1349. Brunet II 468.
