Apart from the already mentioned dampstains a very good copy A compendium of condensed decisions ('placita'), mixed with commentary, made by the supreme court in France (the Parisian Parliament) on ecclesiastical matters, the king and the nobility, the courts and the practice and implementation of law, civil life, and criminal justice. The "placita," dated (from 14th century to the author's time) but not quoted verbatim, are organised by subject and cover such miscellany as the ban on selling masks, the rights of bakers, commercial loans, Gallican church independence, marriage forced by rape, protections for surgeon's apprentices, etc. Book XI includes a section on the laws governing public auctions. The manuscript note in French at the front informs that the author Jean du Luc was first prosecutor at the Parliament of Paris and afterwards prosecutor general of Queen Catherine de Medicis, wife of Henri II. The ex libris in Latin on the title page reveals that the book belonged to another 'procurator generalis" in the Parisian Parliament.
