Avec les figures de chaque regne que l'injure des temps a épargnées by Bernard de Montfaucon.

Dom Bernard de Montfaucon (13 January 1655 – 21 December 1741) was a French Benedictine monk of the Congregation of Saint Maur. He was an astute scholar who founded the discipline of palaeography, as well as being an editor of works of the Fathers of the Church. He is regarded as one of the founders of modern archaeology.
