> Dear Kemmer,
> It is difficult to know from what Madison says just what edition of Milton
> was sent. There was, for example, the beautiful 1792 edition of PL with
> Frederick Jean Schall's illustrations (the text is Dupré de St. Maur's
> translation). But also there were in 1792 another edition of Mirabeau's
> la Liberté de la Presse" ("Areopagitica") and Jean Baptiste Salaville's
> "translation" 9adaptation) of the "First Defense" "Défense du Peuple
> Anglais, Sur le Jugement et la Condamnation de Charles Premier, Roi
> d'Angleterre. Par Milton." None of these is reported, however, in the
> "Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson. Compiled with Annotations
> E. Millicent Sowerby" (1983). It seems to me most probably it was one of
> prose pieces; the Mirabeau appeared first in 1788 and the Salaville first
> 1789 as "Théorie de la Royauté, d'après la doctrine de Milton."
