A note to this edition in the Bibliotheque nationale catalogue online says “Par Ch. Pinot, sieur Duclos, d’apres Barbier. - Differe par le titre, la pagination ou l’adresse de plusieurs autres editions parues la meme annee, dont une autre sans adresse, une a l’adresse (fausse) d’Amsterdam et une a l’adresse de P. Prault avec privilege. - Imprime en France, probablement a Paris, d’apres le materiel et les usages typographiques ainsi que le papier (Bugey)”. Manuscripts giving permission in 1751 for printing this title exist for both the booksellers Prault and Brunet but it has not yet been determined to which of the several editions dated 1751 they refer.
