Original and only edition of this philosophical/juridical dissertation, written and defended by a member of the count's family Oettingen-Wallerstein (branch Oettingen-Spielberg), Count Franz Albrecht zu Oettingen-Wallerstein (1663-1737) under the supervision of Prof. Johann Banholzer (1645-1725) who was appointed professor at Dillingen in 1679 and who entered the Jesuit order in 1681. The 19 year's old Count had prepared himself not only for war, but also for the arts and humanities, as the second allegorical plate shows: he is depicted there as a Count in armour with a quill in his right hand, leaning on his shield with the motto: 'Ad utrumque paratur'. In 1735 the Count was raised to the 'Reichsführerstand'.
