Quaestiones Familiares was first published in Bologna with title Familiares Quaestiones. Its 136 quaestiones deal mostly with Roman or canon law. Whatever the topic, most of Bero's authorities come from canon law. A durable work, it went through five editions, the last in 1629. As indicated by its title, Marzari's treatise addresses the Roman law of fideicommissum, the request by a testator to any person who benefited by his will or intestacy to give certain objects to a third party. Both titles are scarce, especially Marzari's. OCLC locates 3 copies in North America, all of the 1574 edition (UT-Austin Ransom Library, Harvard and UC-Berkeley Law Schools). Censimento Nazionale Delle Edizioni Italiane del XVI Secolo (EDIT16) Bero: CNCE5561; Marzari CNCE38579.
