Instructions to Nicolaus Theupulo on his appointment by the Doge of Venice to govern Brescia for one year. At this time, Brescia had been under Venetian control for a century, but had experienced recent hostilities with the French; as such, the instructions mention events and governmental decisions from the 15th and early 16th centuries, as well as setting out specific guidelines for Theupulo's tenure in Brescia. Instructions are followed by a table of contents, listing the 76 parts of the instructions (each paragraph is numbered in the text). Notarized by Petrus Grafoldarius. Written in Venice, Italy (f. 2r), in 1525 (f. 29v).
