Very scarce. Divided into two sections the text translates and provides commentaries on various early French lapidaries from manuscripts. The first section describes those works derived from `Oriental Lapidaries' or Near-Eastern sources and includes a long discussion of Marbode and valuable information on Mandeville. The second part describes the `Christian Lapidaries' that are derived from descriptions of the twelve gemstones contained in the breastplate of the High Priest, as well as other stones mentioned in the Bible.
