Catalogue Note

The third work is a rare anthology of verse mourning the death of Fine (6 October 1555), by Fargaeus (La Farge?), Jean Helluys, Jean Doyen, Claude Arnolphe, and others, dedicated to Jean Le Vasseur, principal of the Collège de Reims at Paris. These three works seem to have been bound together at one time but were presumably divided when recently rebound.
