Notes: Attribution - only extant edition located. This was a highly illegal work, and this may explain why it is sometimes referred to in the STN archives under the apparently coded (but rather transparent) Latin title as 'De Ovo Rubro'. (A coded title was also used for d'Holbach's 'Système de la Nature' under the title 'Ouvrage de Boubers'). No extant Latin translation has been detected, and the fact that a consignment of books sent to Deinet and later returned by him is referred to under both titles appears to prove that 'De Ovo Rubro' indeed refers to the French edition of 'Oeufs rouges'. On the clandestine publication and dissemination of this pamphlet in France, see Mairobert, Journal Historique De La Révolution Opérée Dans La Constitution De La Monarchie Françoise, III, 127, entry for 23 May 1772.
