LFB Catalogue 1787

Notes: Attribution - sourced from Gabriel Grasset in Geneva. Brown 'Gabriel Grasset' indicates this edition, which he considers was published by Grasset, although this remains unclear. Fauche-Borel Catalogue (1787) gives (Besançon, 1769) in-8°, but there is no manuscript evidence to suggest that the STN traded in the work after they had sold their Grasset copies in 1773.
