Notes: Printer given as R.R. on title page; R. Read suggested by STC. Originally in French by Gordon. The title page here suggests that this is a translation into English by one E.G., the identity of whom is uncertain. It may be Edward Grimeston [EEBO, STC]. However, the translation is not attributed to Grimeston in either of two articles about him: see Clark,'Edward Grimeston, the Translator' EHR 43 (1928), 585-98 and Boas, 'Edward Grimeston, Translator and Sergeant-at-arms' Modern Philology 3 (1906), 395-409. The ODNB entry for Gordon suggests that he was responsible for both French and English versions. Indeed, the same text, in what looks like the same setting, was re-issued under two different titles in 1604 [see STC 12062 and STC 12062.3] both of which are attributed on their title pages to Gordon only with no mention of E.G. or Grimeston.
