Scope and Contents
Brunet's edition of L'Estoile mentions the selections given in our Manuscript on leaves 1-5 (Brunet V.20), 5v (V.20), 15-19 (V.7-8), 19v-20v (V.10-11), 25v-27v (V.16-D7), giving a variant text in the case of f.l-5 and 5v, and merely a reference in the case of the others.
The editor of L'Estoile's Journal pour la regne de Henri IV atato that the text of the manuscript on leaf 15-19 may be found in J.A, de Thou, Histoire Universelle, 1734, Vol I p.185-9, 286-8.
The rest of the texts have been undiscoverable. Comparison with Bibl. Royale Manuscript Fr. 10303 and 10304 suggests strongly that the Italic hand visible on leaf 5v and in the margins of the last 4 items is that of L'Estoile himself. These manuscripts are supposedly holograph but are actually in various hands, although all are annotated by this italic. Perhaps the other hands are those of amanuenses.
References include Haag. La France protestant, Joecher, Biog. universelle, and L'Estoile, Pierre de. Memoires-Journaux ... ed. Brunet. Paris, 1875-1896.
