Gilles Le Bouvier, herald of the King of France and King-of-Arms of Berry,
was in the army with Joan of Arc from the coronation of Charles VII at Rheims to
her capture at Compiègne. His chronicle was first published in 1661. This
manuscript is part of the collection formed by Acton Griscom, one of the most
important collections of books and manuscripts about Joan of Arc outside of France.
