'Comoedia D. Guilielmus Dux Aquitaniae ..., exhibita à iuuentute Collegii Soctis Iesu Bruxellæ nonis Februarii anno cio.ioc.xiiii. et dedicata illustriss. & excellent Principibus Auriacis, etc.' This is a comedy in Latin and French verse and prose, with dedications, synopsis, prologues, and epilogues: the French choruses and 'Balet des onze Anges' have musical notes.

The subject is William duke of Aquitaine (d. 1137), whose daughter married Louis vii of France. On fol. 8 he is called 'Sainct Guillaume.' This appears to be a presentation copy to Philip William prince of Orange, from the stamp on the side of the binding.
