    More Information: Gregoire (d.1597) was a native of Toulouse where he taught law. "He as a very learned man, and wrote some books full of erudition; but he does not appear very judicious in the choice of the things contained in them...He was invited into Lorrain in a very glorious manner, to be professor of the civil and canon law at Pontamousson, where duke Charles had lately founded a university," Pierre Bayle. This work was reprinted a number of times in France, Italy, and Germany; but all editions are scarce.      Adams G1089. Baudrier VIII, 376 & 373. Ferguson I,344 (later ed.)
