This is a study of the laws concerning the transfer of land from an overlord to a vassal (investiture) in Sicily, the governed under the Crown of Aragon, which included most of southern Italy. Gregorio, a lawyer from Messina, is not to be confused with the French jurist Pierre Gregoire [1540-1617]. A second edition was published in 1600, a reprint of the first edition in 2002. All three are scarce. In North America OCLC locates 1 copy of the first edition (at the Library of Congress), 1 copy of the second edition (at Harvard Law School) and two copies of the 2002 reprint (at Harvard Law School and UC-Berkeley).
