Title from caption title (p. v). Second word of title misspelled "criminaeles" in Zacour-Hirsch. The first work is also given
the title "Ils statuts in chiossas criminaelas dalg hundro comoen da Brawoing in alta rhaetia" (p. 1).
Title from label on cover: Statuta criminalia et civilia communitatis Burgunniensis.
Translator's note: "Copios, e defantts gio dalg Original in quaist praesent Cudasch da me, Peidar p. Jovalta ... 1717, die
19 Augusti" (p. v).
The first three and last works are dated: first work, 1717 (p. v); second work, 1680 (p. 41); third work, 1712 (p. 1, second
series); last work, 1716 (p. 15, second series). These are most likely dates of composition rather than the date of the copy.
The entire manuscript appears to have been copied at about the same time, probably 1717 or soon after, since this is the latest
date mentioned in the texts. There are additions in a later hand on pp. 83-86, dated 1719-1724. The additions on p. 12 (second
series) are undated.
Pagination: Paper, 71; [viii], 1-108, 1-21, [vii]; contemporary pagination in ink, upper center or upper outer corners. The
actual numbers are used for reference; the second set of pages numbered 1-12 are referred to as "second series."
Script: Written in a single hand, with later additions in a second hand (p. 83-86, p. 12).
Binding: Contemporary half parchment. Green cloth ties. Cover shows signs of wear, especially at the corners and at the front
Origin: Written in St. Gall, Switzerland, 1717-1724.
