Gouron & Terrin, 647-648; Dupin 1210, 19 & 20; Caswell & Sipkov, The Coutumes of France in the Library of Congress, 437. The very rare orginal edition published between 1751 and 1767. "The general coutume of the duchy of Burgundy governed a very extensive territory which included five large bailliages -those of Auxois, Montagne or Châtillon-sur-Seine, Dijon, Autun, and Châlon-sur-Sâone. (.....) The coutume of the duchy was confirmed on August 26, 1459, and that of the county on December 28 of the same year. A reform of the coutume of the duchy ... was confirmed by the parlement at Dijon, December 15, 1575" (Caswell & Sipkov, The Coutumes of France in the Library of Congress, p. 52).Gabriel Devot was the first professor of French law at the newly created faculty in Dijon in 1723. He sought to demonstrate, by comparing customary law of Burgundy with the other customary laws of the kingdom, that a true French law did actually exist and that that French law was detached from all sorts of particularities and even surpassed these. And it was with that aim in mind he composed these impressive volumes in which he collected, concerning almost every conceivable legal subject, the general and common law of France and the specific law of the province, thereby creating a monumental collection both for ancient French law as well as the history of law of Burgundy, which served as a breviary for contemporaries, and was extensively used by lawyers, judges and others active in the judicial system, and which is still of great interest today. The whole was edited and annotated by his friend the lawyer Jean Bannelier, who also added treatises by other authors from Burgundy. It is very rare to find this work with the 9th index volume: it is not mentioned by any of the cited reference works, and various law libraries have the 8 volume set, always lacking the index volume, an indispensable tool for effective use of these volumes. First 100 pages of volume 8 with a stain in the outer lower margin, copies with the bookplate of Emile Remy, Président du tribunal civil à Mende (Lozere). ‎
