Chapter Summary

This chapter highlights the characteristics of manuscript receipt of Treaty of Giles de Rome in its French versions as well as different forms of its transmission and diffusion in the society of the late middle Ages. Certain manuscripts bear the name of their owner at the beginning or at the end of the text, a practice that allowed them to assert their property. Overall, it is found that special attention was paid to the layout to allow the reader to have certain reading experience. The chapter discusses the owners and readers of the book of government of kings and princes from the minor nobility and middle class community. As highlighted Charles F. Briggs, the Chicago manuscript, Univ. Libr., 533 Ms attests to the receipt of book of government of kings and princes among the English gentry. The original text of the chapter is in French.
