Publisher's name lacking but t.p. has what may be a device, consisting of 3 crowns in a single row over 6 angels' heads with pairs of wings, arranged in three rows, 3/2/1.
Binding: 19th-century maroon embossed paper over pasteboard, quarter purplish pebble-grained cloth. Tops of leaves closely trimmed, into the legend above the plates. Holes remain from an earlier binding.
Signatures: the 1st gathering consists of 3 folds, the 1st and 3rd from the Besançson ed. and the 2nd from the Paris ed. The two Besançon sheets are signed *2 (4th leaf) and *4 (6th leaf). The signatures continue as follows, beginning with the 2nd gathering, and with each gathering labelled with the place of the ed. to which it appears to belong: **⁴ A-G⁴ H² ***⁴: 40 leaves (E4 blank).
The portion of the present copy from the Besançon ed. does not correspond exactly to any of those described in BN, but it is not one of the earlier: on p. vi, viii-xii, the running title has been corrected from Epilogue to Prologue; in Chant V, the name of the publisher Cramer has been changed to Brimer; there are no errata.
Parts of Library's copy from another ed., including additional t.p. on recto of 3rd leaf: La guerre civile de Geneve, ou, Les amours de Robert Covelle : poëme heroïque avec des notes instructives. Derniere Edition. A Bezançon : Chez Nicolas Grandvel, 1768. The paper of *⁴ (with Besançon t.p. on *1, **⁴, D⁴, E⁴, and ***⁴ has about 12 laid lines per cm. like that of the Besançon t.p., rather than about 9 per cm. like that of the Paris t.p. Thus these gatherings appear to be from the ed. of the Besançon t.p. Besançon as place of publication for editions of La guerre civile de Genève was often false for various other places; see BN.
