First published around 1474 in Basel, this highly respected reference is a collection of terms dealing with the Ius Commune taken from such late-scholastic texts as the Vocabularius Stuttgardiensis (1432), the Collectio Terminorum Legalium (c. 1400), and the Introductorium pro Studio Sacrorum Canonum of Hermann von Schildesch (c. 1330). The second work is a well-known formulary (vocabulary and form book) on procedure in the papal courts produced for the German market. The first edition has not been determined, but two incunable editions with similar titles were printed in Rome.
