    Book synopsis: The objective of this work is to provide a reasoned and a study of French and Occitan manuscript production twelfth century catalog. Framed on one side by the first monuments, and on the other by the growth of vernacular book during the thirteenth century, the founder corpus provides access to bookish origins of the literature of medieval France. Detailed instructions are devoted to one hundred and two manuscripts contain texts being originally part of a book project (as Roland Oxford or Alexis Hildesheim) or text added over the years on pages white or in the margins of Latin manuscripts. Vernacular testimony sporadic - glosses, traces, fragments, isolated words or phrases - embedded in a Latin language context are briefly listed in the Appendix. Each record has a codicologique and palaeographic description, linguistic and literary reviews, bibliographic references and a copy of a page of the manuscript. A detailed introduction provides a synthesis of the elements identified and taken up in order to put into perspective the different lines of force of the first "set book" vernacular.
