This edition published in Bonsons precedes that of 1584, the first expanded by Antoine Du Verdier.

In this book, the reader will find dozens of chapters on the most diverse subjects: antiquities, history,
philosophy, esotericism, the sciences, gastronomy, language, Judaism, mores and customs. The taking of Constantinople by the Turks, the origin of Mahommet, the Turkish Empire, days during heat waves, the Templar Order, etc.
