About this Item


  • The Customs of Andorra.

Other Title

  • La coutume d'Andorre


  • Jean-Auguste Brutails (1859-1926) was a member of the high court of Andorra in Perpignan, France. In this role, he was required by the French government to devote himself to the thorough study of the laws and customs of Andorra. The investigations he carried out and his work as a jurist were the basis for La Coutume d'Andorre (The customs of Andorra), a compilation of traditions and common law published in Paris in 1904. The work is in two parts. The first part is a compilation of public and private documents that Brutails collected in the course of his research. These documents are mainly in French and Catalan and date from the 18th and 19th centuries, but they also include the decree of 1305 in Latin by the count of Foix granting certain privileges to the Andorrans. Based on his reading and analysis of the documentation, Brutails composed the second part of the book, in which he covers the geography, economy, demography, and the historical, administrative, and sociological aspects of Andorra, as well as its customs, civil institutions, and judicial organization and procedures.
