Although the title page states 1852, this second edition was actually printed sometime in 1854. The only difference between the first printing and the second printing is the address on the title page. This second edition reads "PARIS RUE DE TOURNON, 7." at the bottom of the title page.Translated primarily by Curtis Bolton from July 1850 to January 1852, with help from a former Jesuit and Catholic priest by the name Baptiste Wilhelm. Wilhelm helped to translate the first eighty-five or so pages, but quit due to John Taylor's refusing to print a pamphlet he penned. Regardless of the information on the title page John Taylor knew very little French and did not help to translate the book. A very attractive and very clean copy. Flake/Draper 715. Crawley 656.
