First edition of an influential work on the legal system in Portugal.   The aim of the author, a well-known jurisconsult, was to provide the reader with a knowledge of the law, which he considered to be very important, and he gives extensive legal and financial advice.   In the prologue he records his debt to Justus Henning Boehmer, on whose writings the book is based.
