Excerpt from The Declaration of London February 26, 1909: A Collection of Official Papers and Documents Relating to the International Naval Conference Held in London December, 1908 February, 1909

For all these reasons the subject claims attention. That the Declara tion was not ratified and officially sanctioned in its own right and that it has finally been abandoned even in substance does not, it would seem, detract from the value of the collection which follows. The Declaration constitutes the best statement of the laws of war at sea as they stood in 1914, and it marks the high tide, historically, of the liberalization of those laws. The proposals in preparation for and in course of the conference and the eventual compromises attained embody in written form all those perplexing conflicts be tween sea and land, island and continent, navy and army, belligerent and neutral, and, to a certain extent, war and peace, which have emerged into public attention since August, 1914.
