9FOREWORDIn 1997 the Comité Maritime International celebrates its centenary. One ofthe ways in which this anniversary will be marked is the publication of twovolumes of Travaux Préparatoires, respectively of the 1910 Collision Conventionand the 1952 Arrest Convention and of the Hague and Hague-VisbyRules. The three conventions are not the only, but certainly some of the mostimportant among the contributions by the CMI to the unification of maritimelaw during the first century of its existence. The publication of their TravauxPréparatoires will bear witness to the unique contribution by the CMI to theunification of maritime law, which is its principal object.The publication of these two volumes is only possible thanks to the greatamount of work put into this undertaking by CMI’s past president, professorFrancesco Berlingieri. He conceived the idea and executed it in every detail,and it is thanks to him that maritime lawyers will possess this excellent tool fortheir future work.ALLAN PHILIP
