Notes: Attribution - sourced from Geneva in 1777. Brown 'Gabriel Grasset' attributes this, the 3rd edition, to Gabriel Grasset, who offered the STN 100 copies in June 1777. However, the Grasset copies were eventually declined by the STN, who instead sourced the work from Jean-Samuel Cailler. Several copies of a Dutch edition of this work were also traded by the STN, but is has not proven possible to disaggregate these copies from this record.
