A scarce Miniature Book. “One of the typographical wonders and an unsurpassed feat as far as minuteness and beauty of type is concerned” (Spielmann 201).
“Édition imprimée avec les caractères microscopiques de H. Didot; elle est d'un format plus exigu encore que l'édition de Sédan et que celle de Pickering” (Brunet III, 324).
