Language(s): French
Publication: n.pl. [?]

Notes: Attribution - edition not identified. Saint-Aulaire's work is presented as the authentic memoirs of Henry Lasers de Latude, but Quérard insists this was not the case. Superbook attribution uncertain - manuscript information gives only 'Donjon de Vincennes', which, after Darnton 'Corpus' was an alternative title of this work. However, sales given here all came between 1791 and 1793, leaving open the possibility of the work's being 'Dialogue entre le Donjon de Vincennes et la Bastille'.
