Very rare first edition thus of the regulations governing Dominican nuns, published by order of Alexandre Vincent Jandel (1810–1872), who served as Master of the Order of Preachers from 1850 until his death.

The regulations detailed here cover religious services, fasting, meals, care of the sick, sleeping arrangements, dress, common property, silence, admission to the order, novices and their instruction, various misdemeanours in order of gravity (e.g. singing badly, grumbling about the food, sending or receiving letters without permission, rebelling against the prioress &c.), apostasy, the prioress, cellarer and other officers, monastic buildings, entering and leaving the monastery, and meetings of the chapter. Also included is the text of the rule of St Augustine.
