The first volume originally appeared in 1665. The "most reliable ancient nobiliary we have on the Lyonnais" (Saffroy). History of this famous convent founded near Lyon, one of the oldest in France. The author's reliable records of the monks' nobility provide a first-rate genealogical tool for the Lyonnais region. Handwritten annotation at the head of Volume I: "Acheté 90 fr les deux volumes chez Brun libraire à Lyon // le 13 Xbre 1858 Baron de Carmejane Pierredon". The book then passed to Librairie Georges Saffroy, with its label stuck to the back cover "Librairie historique // et nobiliaire // Georges Saffroy // 4, rue Clément - Paris 6e", with its record preserved.
