Edition type (by origin): Place of publication unknown
Language(s): French
Publication: n.pl. [?]
Details: 1 volume
Notes: Attribution - edition not identified, numerous produced from 1789, when copies seized at their printshop were recovered from the Bastille. N.B. The standard attribution of this pamphlet to Goupil appears to be wrong, at least in part. Goupil died in prison in 1778, but this biography discusses events from 1781. In fact, the work emanated from A network of libellistes run by Jacquet de Douai. (See Simon Burrows, 'Blackmail, Scandal and Revolution').
