- A cadastre is an official register of real property — ownership, quantity, value — compiled for the purpose of tax assessment. Written in the late fourteenth or early fifteenth century in the Rouergue in southern France, to judge from the money unit used, the “Rodanes,” and from the places mentioned, all east and slightly north of Albi, including Réquista, St-Julien, Valence (-d’Albigeois), Hôpital Bellegarde, and Estrieysses. Réquista (“Ricestat”) may be the origin of the cadastre; it is the center to which the others usually are related (“on the road from Réquista to” wherever).
- Unbound, in a cover of cloth over paper boards; leather label on spine with modern printing: “Rodez. Manuscript Cadastre – XIVth – XVth Century.”
