This manual on bills of exchange and contracts is one of the earliest law books to be printed in Greece. Greece had won its independence from the Ottomans only two decades earlier and was beginning to develop its own civil and commercial codes. Nothing is known about the author, who was a lawyer, except that he also translated books from French into Greek.
