Notes

First edition of Boisguilbert's first work, a French translation of Herodian's colourful history, originally written in Greek in the third century and covering the Roman Empire from the death of Marcus Aurelius to the accession of Gordian III.
Though first published in 1675, the work received its privilège in 1673.
