Description

Digital facsimile

188, [4] p. ; 22 cm.

Bound handwritten manuscript.

This unsigned ms. was likely copied from Harcourt's original ms., estimated to have been written in 1775 and published in 1919 by Ernest de Ganay (Paris : Émile-Paul Frères).

Each page of handwritten text is centered and framed within a single-ruled border, faintly drawn in pencil.

The last [4] p. are blank, except for the hand-drawn penciled border.

The treatise is divided into two parts, each part containing thirteen chapters. A table of contents is provided at end (p. 187–188).
