Notes: Author's name from the privilege: composé par Marc Lescarbot. Date of publication from the privilege which is dated: le neufiesme jour de Septembre l'an de grace 1610. Apparently it was the original intention to conclude with leaf C4 verso, which is printed in small type and ends with the word "Fin." Leaf D1 repeats the text of leaf C4 with the exception of the concluding sentence, and the text continues to p. 44. Thus the numerals 23-24 are repeated in the pagination. Page 7 misnumbered 1; numeration of p. 46 printed upside down. Title vignette with motto: Fortior in adversis.
Collation: 24, 23-46 p. ; 16 cm
