Book of great typographic beauty which compiles for the first time the Valencian statutory legislation from James I up to the XV century.
There were manuscript charters which therefore reached a limited audience.
For the first time in 1482 these were printed achieving great dissemination and use by the lawyers of the fifteenth century.
This book contains the Charters of King James I and Alphonse II of Valencia.
In years after 1240 the aspirations of the "costum" depended on the King’s willingness, who had granted it. For this the city and some towns attempted to obtain the irrevocability of Valencian law on behalf of the King, the definite constitution of the Kingdom as Autonomous State.
This took place in April 1261, in which evidence is shown of the celebration of the first Valencian "Corts", in which king James swore in the "Furs" and the "Costumes" of Valencia, and stated that, just as he had sworn and confirmed the charters and the customs, his successor should also do so before the "Cort General", at the beginning of their reign.
