First published in 1723, this compilation records Charles Emmanuel III's final set of reforms of the legal code of the Kingdom of Sardinia, which was enacted in 1723 by his predecessor, Victor Amadeus III. In this form the code remained in force until the Kingdom was conquered by Napoleon in 1797. It was reinstated when the House of Savoy was restored in 1814. The copy was extensively annotated in several eighteenth and early-nineteenth century hands. Most of the notes are by the great Savoyard jurist Claude-Antoine Doppet [1752-1827], a doctor of law and avocat of the Senate of Savoy. There are many references to mid-eighteenth century lawsuits and court decisions. On the subject of the "Manner of articulating the facts" (Book III, title XVI), for example, the annotator relates a lawsuit brought by the Cathedral of Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne in the 1750. There are also several interesting notes on criminal law and the use of torture.
