Notes: Attribution - MS1007 and catalogue information, sourced from Lausanne. At least two editions of this work were produced under the false imprint (Paris, 1776), one by Gabriel Grasset in Geneva and this one, by Jean-Pierre Heubach in Lausanne. The STN sourced the majority of their copies from Lausanne and only ever accounted for a single edition. Thus they probably never traded in the Grasset edition.
