Editor First edition ?
Engraver Paris: L. Parent
Publisher. Info. Paris: G. Flaxland, n.d.(1867). Plate B.P. 1633, 1641, 1642, 1648, 1649.
Misc. Notes B.P. not a usual Flaxland plate prefix? B.P. could be for Bellon Ponscarme (an early 1900s Paris publisher- perhaps they reprinted it with their plates?...? no sign of this though?) or for another mid-19th century French publisher that I recall had similar initials, though. Also, "1867" is clear on bottom of first page and does not seem to be a library-added marking, though it may not be a valid copyright marker. n.d.(1867) may not be exactly accurate.
