[xvi], 263,  pp. Quarto (8-1/2" x 6"). Contemporary limp vellum, ties lacking, early hand-lettered titles to spine and foot of text block. Light soiling and minor staining, some rubbing to extremities, hinges starting, a few partial cracks to text block. Moderate toning to text, early owner signatures to title page of De Restitutis, brief annotations to a few leaves. $1,850. * De Restitutis, Only edition; De Fructibus, first edition. Two interesting titles by a little known Parisian lawyer. The first of these, De Restitutis, is an oration on property taxes (civil fruits) in civil law. The second work, De Fructibus, is a treatise on usufruct in Roman and canon law. A second edition of this work was published in 1583. Bibliographically distinct, it appears these two titles were often bound together. Both titles are rare. In North America, OCLC locates no copies of De Restitutis, 1 copy of the 1536 edition of De Fructibus (at Harvard Law School), 2 copies of its 1583 edition (at Princeton University and UC-Berkeley) and 2 copies of the 1636 edition of De Restitutis bound with De Fructibus (at Brigham Young University and Columbia). Neither title in Adams or the British Museum Catalogue.
