6 SPOR, Cajus Rudolf von. Dissertatio Inauguralis Juris Publici et Feudalis de Natura Vasallagii et Subjectionis in Territoriis S.R. Imperii. In Academia Viadrina Anno MDCCXXIII. D.XVII. Sept. Primum Edita nunc Iterum Excusa.
Frankfurt: Philippi Schwartzii, 1739. 1739 
// 8vo. 59, [5] pp. Title vignette, head and tail pieces. Modern marbled wrappers. RARE. Near fine. Scarce dissertation by German jurist von Spor for the Viadrina European University. Viadrina European University was founded in 1506 by Joachim I Nestor, Elector of Brandenburg. "In 1736 the eminent jurist Johann Jakob Moser was called to head the Faculty of Law at the university, but had to leave after three years due to his thoroughly Liberal ideas which were disliked by then King Frederick William I of Prussia" (Wikip.). Although there is precious little information about von Spor, and this appears to be his only publication, it is likely that he studied under Moser, publishing his dissertation the year of Moser's departure. A statement relating to King Frederick William I of Prussia (1688-1740) is found on the verso of H2 in this pamphlet. There is also the name of professor Bernardus Henricus Reinoldus [Bernhard Heinrich Reinold (1677-1726)], whose role may have been to represent the author with this dissertation [post-script dated 1723]. According to WorldCat, 3 libraries hold this work, all in Germany: Berlin State Library—Prussian Cultural Heritage, SLUB Dresden, and Universität Leipzig. See also: G. C. J. J. Van Den Bergh, The Life and Work of Gerard Noodt, 1647-1725: Dutch Legal Scholarship Between Humanism and Enlightenment, Oxford University Press, 1988.
