According to Saintyves, the first edition of the book was printed in 1740, and later editions continued until 1852. The copy here for sale is an early edition, dated 1741. The book itself is likely a pseudo-epigraph; the author, Thomas-Joseph Moult, is thought to be a fictitious invention. This copy is bound in an old antiphonal manuscript.
