Two important medieval legal handbooks, in attractive original condition and binding. Vocabularis juris utriusque was a very popular introductory guide to canon and civil law, published anonymously but identified as the work of Jodocus in a number of early manuscripts. Jodocus was doctor of decretals at the university at Erfurt. The second work is a procedural guide to the Roman court produced for the German market. Two incunable editions were printed in Rome under the title Formularium terminorum. Copinger 6273; Goff V358 (first work).
