Scope and Contents

This manuscript (50 pages) is bound up with 9 contemporary printed pamphlets (total of 172 pages) on the case of the Sieur de Guénégaud, who claimed he had been swindled between 1654 and 1657 through the use of forged signatures and documents. The 9 pamphlets were sponsored by Guénégaud or his lawyers, who probably commissioned the present manuscript.
