Note: 277 folios + 9 flyleaves, 10 large historiated initials, 146 smaller historiated initials. In 1247, with the reconquest of Spain from the Moslems virtually complete, King James I of Aragon and Catalonia, Spain, decided to establish a new systematic code of law for his kingdom. He entrusted the task to Vidal de Canellas, bishop of Huesca. The Getty Museum's manuscript, the only known copy of the law code still in existence, is a translation of Vidal de Canellas's Latin text into the vernacular Navarro-Aragonese language.
