This volume combines two treatises on Roman law. Medici's addresses examples of proximate cause, that is, cases that are legally sufficient to result in liability. It was first published in 1577 and went through several later editions, the last in 1596. Originally published in 1564 as Quis Teneatur Probare Negativam, Et Quibus Modis Negativa Probetur Ercolani's treatise concerns the law of evidence. It is based on a work by the Medieval jurist Martino (Martinus) da Fano. Its final edition was published 1664. Portions of this work were included in a treatise by Fulvio Pacciani, De Probationibus Libri Duo (1703). Verzeichnis der im Deutschen Sprachbereich Erschienenen Drucke des 16. Jahrhunderts M1876, M1265.
