Those unfamiliar with the earlier volume in this series, on “sources for the economic and social history of the Middle Ages” (of western Europe), all edited by the distinguished French historian Robert-Henri Bautier and the archivist Janine Sornay, will find this title confusing. The first tome, published in three subsidiary volumes (so far) from 1968, provides the archival sources for the economic and social history of the medieval French principalities of Comtet-Venaissin, Dauphiné, and the estates of the house of Savoy. The second and current tomes concerns the archival sources for the economic history of the southern and northern domains of the French ducal house of Burgundy; it too is being presented in a series of fascicules. To date, the editors have published just two parts of the first volume, whose overall title is Les archives centrales de l'État bourguignon (1384–1500): archives des principautés territoriales. Adding to the confusion, their first publica-tion in this series, presented in 1984, was also vol. I, part 2: Les principautés du Nord. It covered some (not all) of the Burgundian principalities in the Low Countries: the county of Flanders (and its seigneurie of Malines, within Brabant); the county of Artois (along with the “villes de Somme,” now all part of France); the duchy of Brabant; the duchy of Limburg and the adjacent lands known as the “terres d'Outre-Meuse”; the county of Hainaut (now also part of modern France); and the duchy of Luxembourg (with the county of Chiny). That choice therefore had a certain commendable logic, since this region commands a far greater importance in the economic history of medieval Europe than do the southern principalities, even though the latter provided the foundations for the Burgundian realm.
