Brisson's (1531-1591; latinised as Brissonius) public career included holding various positions by appointment of Charles IX and Henry III, among them the sixth president of Parlement. When the Seize took over Paris in 1589, Brisson was sufficiently diplomatic for them to also appoint him first president of the new Parlament, but before long he lost their trust and was executed in 1591. James Fowler Kellas Johnstone (1846-1928) was a specialist in bibliographies of Aberdeen and North East Scotland, and the author, with A.W. Robertson, of 'Bibliotheca Aberdonensis' (1928). J.L. Weir was probably the Scottish historian, author of 'Excerpta Scotica' (1939). Willems, 1615.   Ref: 53154  show full image..
