Footnotes

  • No French edition has been traced, and this is apparently a translation from the Latin, De studiis Jesuitiarum, 1609. The text of this copy is complete (with 'Finis' on last page), and although ESTC records C4 as blank, the copy on EEBO conforms to this, which strongly suggests C3 is also blank.
