Scope and Contents
Also in the volume: Nomenclator Gallicus; Avium variarum nomina (Latin-German ornithological vocabulary).
Dating for the volume comes from the Title-page : 1634. The day after Epiphany [that is] January 7 O.S. [i.e. circa December 30, 1634. N. S.]
The author was presumably a tutor, in the "mirror of princes" tradition. May show some signs of being based on Latin dialogues; but the French is lifelike. The volume appears to have been written in Weikersheim (Germany).
In spine: 2 manuscript fragments (divinity?); 1 printed fragment about 16th-century historians.
