ORNE. Manuscript notebook of 4 pp. on vellum, 34 x 30 cm. 1458-1459. Smudging not affecting legibility. Fragment of a medieval book of accounts of legal fees in Argentan. For example, paid to Léonard Marois, blacksmith, the sum of 4 livres 15 sols for "three pairs of irons for prisoners weighing sixty pounds of iron" delivered in the presence of Jehan Moynet, viscount of Argentan "for the security and custody of the prisoners who could be put in the prisons which had only one pair. prisons which had only one pair which could no longer be used without rappareil" and for having "remade and rappareilliez the aforementioned pair of irons with a large tightening being place of the room of height of the geole where one withdraws the criminal prisoners this while one makes their lawsuits [...]". There is other interesting information about the transfer of a prisoner from Argentan to Dampfront, André Madeline, where he was "executed by justice", or the payment of a messenger on horseback for his trip from Argentan to Falaise to bring missives to the master of the high justice, etc.
