Additions to the printed volume Statuta, constitutiones ac decreta ducalis provincae Friniani (Reggio Emilia: Hercoliano Bartoli, 1587). The volume contains a revised copy of the statutes of Frignano, a small city in the Duchy of Modena and Reggio, Northern Italy. The statutes, originally written in 1337, are divided into four parts, or libri, each in turn divided into smaller sections, called rubricae. Detailed index and table of contents with the topics of the laws codified in the statute can be found at the beginning of the volume (f.[i-x]).The manuscript additions contain copies of correspondence, dated 1547, between a local member of the government and a citizen, named Gherardino, who complained about having to pay taxes and customs fees; copies of laws regulating the salt trade and industry, followed by data on the production of salt in the villages of the province; and an essay, referred to as guida, dated 1602, illustrating a law issued by Cesare d'Este, that stated that citizens of the Duchy can lose their rights and property if they leave the region for periods longer than ten years.
