Full title: Histoire des religieux de la Compagnie de Jesus
Edition type (by origin): Place of publication unknown
Author(s): Quesnel, Pierre
Language(s): French
Publication: n.pl. [?]
Details: 3 volumes
Notes: Attribution - edition not identified, several produced. Superbook attribution uncertain - for all but the copy sourced from Haller and suplied to Carli-Ribbi in 1779, which was certainly this work. Manuscript information gives 'Histoire des jesuites', which could indicate several works, especially Linguet's 'Histoire impartiale des Jesuites' (n.p., 1768). However, Darnton 'Corpus' attributes the sale to Billaut in Tours to Quesnel's work, and manuscript information gives '65 sheets' which may make this more likely than Linguet's work (which was 2 volumes in-12°, c.900 pages). Neverthless, the lastest edition of Quesnel's work located was published in 1751, so attribution must remain subject to some caution.
