About Oxford Historical Treaties

 
 
 

Oxford Historical Treaties (OHT) is the premier resource for historical treaty research and home to the full text of The Consolidated Treaty Series, the only comprehensive collection of treaties of all nations concluded from 1648 through 1919.

The Consolidated Treaty Series is already established as the primary resource for research on historical treaties, but has never before been made available in the digital space.

Individual treaties from within the series are reproduced as PDFs exactly as they appear in the print series. The treaty titles and introductory information are discoverable via deep tagging and XML data, and searchable by treaty party, Consolidated Treaty Series (CTS) citation, and date or date range.

OHT also features the Oxford Law Citator, which provides links between related cases, articles, and additional materials within OHT, other online resources from OUP, and selected third party websites. Available via the Oxford Public International Law platform, OHT is cross-searchable with Oxford’s leading public international law resources and benefits from a modern, intuitive interface and sophisticated functionality.
