1 Jean Jacques Gaspard Foelix, 1791-1853. He was born in the Electorate of Treves, and began, in 1814, the practice of the law at Coblentz. Upon the transfer of the Rhenish provinces from France to Germany, which soon followed, he had occasion to deal with questions involving a conflict between German law and the French code. He was thus led to the study of comparative jurisprudence,—a department in which he excelled all his contemporaries. Removing to Paris in 1826, and naturalized as a French citizen in 1829, he founded, in 1833, the Revue Étrangere de Legislation et daEconomie Politique; the name of which was, in 1840, changed to the Revue Étrangere et Francaise de Legislation, de Jurisprudence, et daEconomie Politiqiue: aided by associates, he conducted this Review till 1850. He was the author of a treatise on the ‘Conflict of Laws’ (Traite du Droit International Prive;).
