Notes
Content: By Voltaire; attributed successively to J.-M. Durey de Morsan, C.-G.-F. Christin and J.-L. Wagnière. Cf. Bengesco, G. Voltaire, I, 1862.
Content: ESTC (RLIN) T199219
Content: Paginary reprint of 1776 Geneva ed., which had the same false imprint. Distinguished from the Geneva ed. by the unligatured 'oe' in the 5th word of the title, the use of lower-case Roman numerals in the preliminaries, and the lack of a t.p. ornament. The presence of press figures suggests a British origin; errata in the Geneva ed. have been corrected. Cf. ESTC.
Content: Thomas, D.H. Major French authors in Oxford libraries 1526-1800, p. 200.
Content: With: Voltaire. Fragments sur l'Inde, sur le General Lalli, et sur le Comte de Morangiés. [London : s.n.], 1773 -- Voltaire. Le taureau blanc. [London : s.n.], 1774. Number 2 of 3 items bound together subsequent to publication.
