History of the Rise of the Huguenots
Vol. 1

written by "Baird, Henry Martyn, 1832-1906"
... [266] Recueil des anc. lois françaises, par Jourdan, Decrusy et Isambert, xii. 232-237. [267] Isambert, ubi supra. [268] The author of the anonymous Journal d'un bourgeois dé Paris, 383, 384. His description, written in 1528, is interesting: "Ledict Barquin avoit environ 50 ans, et portoit ordinairement robbe de veloux, satin et damas, et choses (chausses) d'or, et estoit de noble lignée et moult grand clerc, expert en science et subtil, mais néantmoins il faillit en son sens."

Ibid., 2de Coll., No. 35. [274] The chief authorities for the first two imprisonments of De Berquin are the long and important letter of Erasmus, to which I shall have occasion again to refer (Opera, ii. 1206, seq.), Félibien, Hist. de la ville de...
