Explication des statuts de Provence

Alternate Title:
Application des statuts sur les droits seigneuriaux
Provence (France)
Early works to 1800; 18th century
Historical analysis of law in Provence, primarily in the first half of the 18th century, but drawing on material from earlier centuries. Issues addressed include jurisdiction, appeals, the nobility, hunting, and indemnity. A table of contents at the beginning ("Table Generale") lists the sections as well as an alphabetical index at the end of each section. The sections were not written consecutively, as they are on a variety of papers and in a variety of hands; the indices seem to be the latest addition, along with extensive marginalia and some replaced pages.
