"Of all the French writers upon Commercial Law, Emerigon holds
the first rank. His writings and his reputation are not confined to
France alone, for the jurists of Great Britain and the United States
have equally derived assistance form his labors, and have borne
their united testimony to his great learning and diligence. Lord
Ellenborough says, "who has equaled Emerigon as a theoretical
and practical writer on the Law of Insurance? He has exhausted
every topic, so far as materials were within his reach; and upon
all new questions his work, for illustration, and authorities, and
usages, is still unrivalled." Chancellor Kent has spoken with equal
warmth and truthfulness of Emerigon, for he remarks, that his
[Essay on Maritime Loans] "very far surpasses all preceding works
in the extent, value, and practical application of his principles. It is
the most didactic, learned, and finished production extant on the
subject. He professedly carried his researches into the antiquities of
the maritime law, and illustrated the ordinances by what he terms
the jurisprudence of the tribunals; and he discusses all incidental
questions, so as to bring within the compass of his work a great
portion of international and commercial law connected with the
doctrines of Insurance. In the language of Lord Tenterden, no
subject in Emerigon is discussed without being exhausted, and the
eulogy is as just as it is splendid.'"-J. G. Marvin, Legal Bibliography (1847) 292.
BALTHAZARD-MARIE EMERIGON [1716-1785] was the leading French
authority on commercial law. His reputation rests on his Nouveau
Commentaire sur l'Ordonnance de la Marine, du Mois d'Août 1681 (1780) and
Traité des Assurances et des Contrats à la Grosse (1783).
