General note:French version: 'Lettre d'un gentilhomme de la cour de St. Germain, ..', with the (false?) imprint "A Cologne, chez Pierre Marteau."
Variously attributed to Pierre Des Maiseaux, Daniel Defoe, and Arthur Maynwaring. For authorship controversy see Moore 189 and Snyder in Literatur als Kritik des Lebens (Heidelberg, 1975) p.123. Moore suggests that Des Maiseaux was only responsible for the French translation, but this undoubtedly appeared first - it is possible that he was the author. The Cologne imprint of that edition, however, is probably false.
With half title.
