Series E. Conseil du Roi

I have examined eighty-seven volumes in the collection entitled Minutes d’arrêts. Collection formée par les secrétaires du conseil, which contains decrees issued by the financial components of the royal council. I concentrated upon the periods in which financial issues assumed prime importance and consulted volumes ranging from E 396b (21–30 April 1667) to E 754a (3–10 March 1705). A manuscript inventory, E 1683/22–432, provided assistance. The Collection formée par les secrétaires d’état consists of arrêts en commandement issued by the governing sections of the council. I inspected ninety-five registers in this series, from the onset of the reign of Louis XIV through the succeeding regency of the duc d’Orléans, volumes E 1716 (1662) to E 2073 (1726). For the years up to 1710, a note-card inventory is available under E 1684–1962; and for the regency, Michel Antoine’s Inventaire des arrêts du Conseil du Roi. Règne de Louis XV (arrêts en commandement) (2 vols; Paris, 1968–1974) is indispensable.
