'Recueil des sepultures, tombeaux et inscriptions qui sont dans toutes les eglises abbayes et monasteres de la ville et fauxbourgs de Paris ... 1645', the first four volumes of a set of thirteen.

An index of names in the four volumes is in MS. French b. 2/3 at p. 407. The epitaphs at the cathedral of Notre-Dame occupy pp. 3-114 of MS. French b. 2/4. Defaced bookplates are in all the volumes, and a defaced note of ownership (?) at p. iii of MS. French b. 2/3. An epitaph in i. p. 234 refers to a death in 1681.
