Second edition of Kahl's Law Dictionnary, put on the "Index" of prohibited books.
"His Kahl) best known work is Lexicon iuridicum, appearing for the first time in 1600 (Frankfurt). The text combines original work with compilations drawn from the writings of earlier lexicographers and scholars and substantial annotations. The Lexicon proved to be both serviceable and influential - John Cowell credited Kahl’s text with his inspiration to undertake his own law dictionary (Interpreter, 1607).
Because Kahl was a Protestant, this text ended up on the famous Index prohibitorum in 1659. In spite of this prohibition, at least 14 editions were printed between 1600 and 1673, six of them after the initial decree".(Law Dictionary Collection - University of Texas at Austin).
