    For the genesis of these Conventions reference can be made to the two volumes published by the Hague Conference on Private International Law: Acts of the Eighth Session (1956) and Documents relating to the Eighth Session (1956), notably to the two reports of LI de Winter, p. 124 of the first and p. 310 of the second volume. For the numerous commentaries, etc., see the biliographies published periodically by the Hague Conference on Private International Law, and lastly in the Acts and Documents of the Twelfth Session (1972), tome I, Miscellaneous, p. 139, and the book published by the TMC Asser Institute at The Hague: M Sumampouw: Les nouvelles Conventions de La Haye: leur application par les juges nationaux, Leiden, 1970, Supplément 1972 (Recueil Asser). This book also relates the case law; on this see also AE von Overbeck, L’application par le juge interne des conventions de droit international privé, Recueil des Cours de l’Académie de droit international (Recueil des Cours), tome 123, 1971, I, p. 1.Google Scholar
