This thoroughly annotated volume contains reports of decisions of the Parlement of Grenoble, France. Like many books of this kind, it opens a window on the legal culture and society of the era. First published in 1504, it was reprinted several times well into the seventeenth century. Beyond its legal value, it is significant as the first book published in Grenoble. Guy de la Pape was a legal scholar and statesman who spent most of his career in Grenoble. His best-known work is Commentaria in Statutum Delphinale, a study of the Dauphine region. All editions are scarce. OCLC locates 2 copies of the 1534 edition, both in Europe . Not in Adams or Brunet. Baudrier, Bibliographie Lyonnaise 4:25.
