AZUNI, Domenico Alberto.
Systême universel de principes du droit maritime de l’Europe . . . Traduit de l’italien, avec des additions du même auteur.
First French edition. Azuni’s own translation, with additions, of his principal work on maritime law, Sistema universale dei principii del diritto marittimo dell’ Europa (1795). ‘The first volume . . . is devoted to the sea and to the rights that can be exerted over it, and has an almost exclusively historical character. The author narrates the history of the maritime power of the chief states; considers the various theories relating to the extension of territorial waters; examines what rights can be exerted over them and over fisheries, straits, bays, gulfs and anchorages, and briefly passes in review the maritime laws of the principal states of his time. In the second book, which deals with the maritime law of Europe in wartime, he deals especially with relations between belligerents and neutrals . . . . [He] shows that neutrality is founded not only on particular treaties between the neutrals and the belligerents but also on the very nature of international relations. The sole obligation incumbent on neutrals is to remain impartial. In all other things they have the right to continue as before their relations with the belligerents . . . . Azuni extends the jurisdiction of neutral courts on prizes taken to them and in cases of litigation as to the neutral or enemy quality of goods and ships, especially if the goods and ships are claimed by subjects of the local sovereign. The last part of the book deals briefly with the right of asylum, with reprisals in time of peace, with privateers and pirates’ (Sereni, The Italian conception of international law p. 146).
