THE.EXTENT OF THE
A COLLECTION OF OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS AND
VIEWS OF REPRESENTATIVE PUBLICISTS
The present volume of views and documents bearing upon the extent of the marginal sea is divided into two sections: Part I contains excerpts from the publications of representative publicists; Part II is a compilation of official documents. The documents in Part II are printed in chronological order under countries in alphabetical order. When a document, as a treaty, emanates from two Governments, it is noticed under both countries, but the text appears under only one of them, a footnote reference being made under the other to the page where the text is to be found. Treaties which are expressions of more than two Governments, as the North Sea and the Hague Conventions, are to be found at the beginning of Part II, in the section termed “Polynational.” In many of the documents the words indicating the extent of the territorial sea have been printed editorially in italics to assist the eye. Owing to the limited time available for collecting documents, a number of them are entered only by captions and reference to the authors citing them. Also, a few documents, which were located too late to be inserted in their proper places in the body of the text, have been appended as supplementary documents."
