This comprehensive new title brings together seminal articles on the subject of transfer of property and private international law, ranging from the early twentieth century to present day. The first volume focuses on classic principles concerning the lex situs rule, as well as on specialities regarding immovable property, tangible movable property and intangible property, conditional sale and securities transactions, goods in transit and confiscation of property. The second volume is devoted to an in-depth and insightful discussion of cultural property and private international law. Together with an original introduction by the editor, this collection provides a valuable source of reference for researchers, academics and scholars alike.
