Inventory of a distraint

I felt a vague twinge of remorse: has a biographer the right to suppress certain details under the pretext that he considers them superfluous? Or do they all have their importance, and must he present them one after the other, impartially, so that not a single one is left put, as in the inventory of a distraint?

Can you please rephrase that last bit?

    Look, 'distraint' is a legal procedure whereby the creditor seizes the property of the debtor. While doing so, all property items are listed - an inventory is drafted, and all items thus remain seized according to a list.

    Instead of 'put', 'out is meant, as Barque says.
