WorldCat tells us that both of J.’s known works, the De alimentis (TUI 1584 t. 8.1) and the De spolio were published separately in Roma in aedibus populi Romani in 1579. Both describe him as an advocate of Rome. In the preface to former, ‘Ad lectorem‘, J. says that he became interested in the question because he was consulted about it by a client. The 1579 edition of the latter is not available online. It is, however a more substantial work, which continued to be printed into the 18th century. The online version of what is described as the first German edition, Frankfurt 1686, contains no preface and tells us nothing more about the author.
