Note
General: The imprint (f. q2 recto) reads: Imprimé à Bruxelles, & se vend a Paris, chez Avgvstin Covrbé, dans la petite salle du palais, à la palme. M.DC.LVI. In the printing privilege (f. 2E2 verso - 2E3 recto) Courbé explains that he had bought all counterfeit copies by foreign printers and needed permission to sell these copies in France. Indeed, this edition is a title edition of a pirate edition which was probably printed in Brussels (STCV 12912114). Courbé removed the engraved and typographical title page of the pirate edition (with imprints stating that the book had been printed after the Paris edition!) and added gathering 2E with the French privileges
