The last 2 sheets are blank.
The second work (1548) is by du Tillet Sieur de La Bussiere, jurist and historian, member of the parliament of Paris.
Secretary to King Henrico II and endowed with enormous historical-juridical erudition, he was one of the first historians to have described the history of

The pages are elaborated in the form of tables, divided into 4 columns, 3 of them including the dating in chronological order (from 420 to 1547) and one concerning the text.
Beautiful and sturdy 18th-century binding, full vellum with laces and gilded red label on the spine.
Crisp and well preserved sheets.
Slight and constant browning of the pages, but the text is perfectly readable.
Two separate title pages, crisp and untouched, both with elegant woodcut brand.
Pale blue sprayed edges.
In excellent overall condition.
