Rare work. Second and last edition of these customs of Lorris-Montargis, a village located in the center of France. Its political jurisdiction extended to the province of Gâtinais. First published in 1617, Lhost's edition is based on an annotated edition by Du Mouli dating from 1597 -

"In the first half of the 12th century, the parish of Lorris had obtained a charter of privileges from King Louis VII (1155), and Philip II Augustus granted it again in 1187 -

The custom of Lorris, which was renowned because of these franchises and privileges, was adopted very quickly not only in Gâtinais, but also in Beauce. Lorris' privileges were renewed twice: first in 1448, under Charles VII, then in 1625, under Louis XIII" (Caswell and Sipkov) -
