Summary:
Entries from Guillaume Blanchard's chronological compilation of summaries of thousands of French royal ordonnances and acts issued from 987 to 1715, cut out from the printed edition (Paris: Chez la veuve Moreau, 1715) by Blanchard himself and arranged alphabetically by subject in four volumes. Hundreds of additional slips are tipped onto the left edge of columns. Approximately forty slips are no longer present, most with a mark of cancellation in ink in the blank space left behind. Subjects range widely, from Academies to Ypres. The fifth volume is an index to the subject arrangement of the set with additional entries for personal names, places, and subjects underlined in the printed slips, resulting in an index half again as large as the subject index printed with the 1715 Compilation. The preliminary leaves of the 1715 Compilation are bound in at the beginning of Volume 1 (p. i-viii), together with a foldout letterpress royal genealogy (p. ix); the subject index of the 1715 Compilation is bound in at the end of Volume 5 (p. [291-334]). Manuscript bifolium laid into Volume 3 (between p. [1160]-1161) presents additional entries for the Prevosts des Marêchaux (Volume 3, p. 1157-1165).
