Instantiates
Publication
Note
  • Fictitious imprint; previously published with the same imprint in 1754; Brunet and Grässe give Paris as actual place of publication
  • The original imprint date on title page, M. DCC. LIV, has been altered by covering over "LIV" with a small paper label printed with "LVII," thus changing imprint date from 1754 to 1757; the original date is visible from verso side of title page
  • The first two volumes, comprising Livres I-X, were translated by Pierre Jean Grosley; the remaining volume (comprising both volumes 3 and 4, Livres XI-XIV) by the abbé Edme Mallet, who made use of Grosley's translation of the first ten books in revising his already completed work for publication; see Preface. Mallet is author of the notes as well; See Barbier, Dictionnaire des ouvrages anonymes
  • Engravings: title vignettes by Charles Eisen, engraved by Jacques Aliamet (volume1) and Noël Le Mire (volumes 2 and 3); additional vignettes at beginning of text in all three volumes
  • Woodcuts: large head-pieces; tail-pieces; ornamental initials
  • Title page printed in red and black; text printed in roman type; marginal notes in small roman type
  • Includes indexes
