De Merles; [manuscript].

Title:
De Merles [manuscript].
Abstract:
Memoirs and accounts of Francois de Merles. The author writes of his time spent in Rome, along with his studies in Avignon and Pavia. Frequent mentions of the plague can be found throughout. Also refers to such contemporaries as Pope Alexander VI (f. 5r), his son Cesare Borgia (f. 7v), and Palamede de Forbin (f. 10v). Biographical entries end around the year 1510 (f. 12r). Much of the remainder of the book is a combination of biographical notes alongside accounts. Many of the entries after this point have been crossed out, but are still fully legible. Contains one loose leaf with contemporary notes on it.
