Summary

In this little studied (or referenced) work, the anonymous author summarized many of the doctrines first found in the work of John of Ibelin. The work begins with an extended prologue, then condenses John's work to its most essential points, and presents them in a schematic, almost proverb-like form, as to provide a practical and useful guide to the legal customs he describes.
