[364] pp. Quarto (8-1/2" x 6-1/2"). 1810 Student Notes on Lectures on the Code de Procedure Civile and Code d'Instruction Criminelle [Manuscript]. Jouvent, Barthelemy [d.1821]. Cours de Procedure Civile. Dicte par Monsieur Jouvent, Professeur & Doyen a la Faculte de Droit a Toulouse. Toulouse, 1810. [364] pp. Quarto (8-1/2" x 6-1/2"). Contemporary vellum, gilt fillets and lettering piece (reading PROCEDURE CIVILE ET CRIMINELLE) to spine. Moderate rubbing, front board slightly bowed, front joint partially cracked, vellum beginning to peel away from front board and spine in places, some chipping to spine ends, moderate rubbing to rear boards and corners, a few partial cracks to text block.

Text in neat hand within ruled borders, additional notes in contemporary hand in a few places, "Cazes fils" in bold hand to title page of Cours de Procedure Civile. $1,750. * Enacted in 1806 and 1808, the Code de Procedure Civile and Code d'Instruction Criminelle are two of the main components of the legal system established by Napoleon. Compiled by a law student named Cazes, this is a fair copy of notes on lectures on these codes by Jouvent, a professor of law at the University of Toulouse. Both codes received a good deal of criticism from the legal community when they appeared. Jouvent's lectures provide a detailed and critical reading of the codes. He discusses their articles, sheds light on their obscure parts, gives references to case law and, overall, shows students how to understand and apply them. Jouvent was a lawyer in Montpellier who served as a member of the Council of Five Hundred, the lower house of the national legislature of France during the Directory, from 1795 to 1799. Appointed to the Faculty of Law of the University of Toulouse in 1799, was the school's dean from 1805 to 1815 and 1818-1821, the year of his death. Our manuscript differs significantly from a digitized set of notes from 1819-1820 held by the Bibliotheque de l'Arsenal of the University of Toulouse (MS317). Differences with this manuscript show that Jouvent's ideas changed by the time of the Bourbon Restoration, most likely as a result of his long-term study of the codes, assimilation of the opinions of the legal profession and appreciation of shifti.
