This cache consisted of several volumes of bound "registers" (1632, and at least 2 for 1624, perhaps several more), addenda to these volumes, and several loose pages and folios. Also... a "great parchment" purported to be the "Great Will of the Perillos Family".
At the risk of getting "greenlined" again (apparently someone
doesn't like me taking AD to task)...
There is only one document I can think of that he might be referring to here, detailing the distribution of property to heirs and dated 1461. However, I can't imagine that it would suit AD's purpose to publish it. It would give me too much satisfaction, for one thing.
It turns out that neither volume is a "formal" register, and neither covers the Perillos area. No problem, AD claims that this is covered in the material that no one has yet seen, ie the "extra" 1624 volume and/or the loose pages (which make such claims very problematic because authentication will need to be that much more stringent). He also claims the "great testament of the Perillos" list all their properties and rights.
If it's the document I'm thinking of, then it's been published. I've not seen the original (which is archived not in France, but in Spain) but several modern compendium sources refer to it.
A page on the English language SP site relates the events and compares the "mysterious set-aside" of land in Perillos to the "equally-mysterious" set-aside of the Quai Pierre Scize, in Lyon, which latter was handily debunked on this forum.
I'll be interested to see if this "set-aside" in Périllos relates to Ramon de Monroy, and if AD is simply interpreting his name to be some sort of royal burial mound.
AD claims to ALSO have received a CD in the mail, with the materials previously published by Pascal This content has been removed by the Moderator, who judged it to have broken the House Rules
and is offering them for sale "at cost" to SP members, and to the public "as supplies last". No one has asked him why they'd have to order CDs when they can simply download it, and why they'd do so in any case, since these materials are admittedly "worthless", as far as the "Perillos Enigma" is concerned.
I don't recall them being "worthless" before Pascal published them. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.
Which brings up an interesting question... IF these "held back" materials are indeed probative of Douzet's claims, then why not release them to great fanfare? What time or other element is considered a sufficient factor to have to "wait for", prior to the release of such vindicating documents? This is baffling to me... I hope you all have some sensible theories that can explain this away for me.
You're right, of course.
