Thomas-Jean-Jacques Loranger (1823-1885) was a politician, jurist and a Superior Court Judge, and early in his career was a voice opposed to the seigneurial regime in Lower Canada. DCB (op. cite.) notes with respect to the present work: “. . . Loranger’s Lettres sur l’interprétation de la constitution federale, published in two volumes in 1883 and 1884, made him one of the first French Canadians to publish in the field of constitutional law. In this work he formulated the theory of a federative pact, which would later be taken up by several authors, particularly from Quebec. He thus became one of the great defenders of provincial autonomy.” Here offered is the first volume (only) of the English translation of Lettres.
