Notes: Attribution - edition not identified, extant editions located all with '1784' imprint, but more than one produced. N.B. Simon Burrows and Robert Darnton have both concluded that the likely author of this pamphlet was Anne-Gédéon La Fite de Pelleport, rather than Charles Théveneau de Morande, to whom it has traditionally been attributed. French police records and Jacques-Pierre Brissot's Bastille interrogation records also support this conclusion.
