?Something is amiss in the presentation of this exchange on my screen, so forgive me any repetition.

Ernst Fleischer's version of De Doctrina, Leipzig 1827, is briefly discussed in our edition (Oxford 2012, Intro pp. xxxii-xxxiii).

We had valuable help from the U of Michigan, whose copy we used on-line. Thanks are recorded on p. vii to Michael Schoenfeldt and Aaron McCullough of that place.

I think you want "Ernst" Fleischer.  It is possible that he published a series of various world authors.  (I am reminded that the French Pleaide editions include numerous English titles.) My googling has brought up a number of hits in German for the name, city, and date that should be easy enough for the online translator to make sense of.  You might also want to check with book historians.

Dear all,

I am wondering if, on or off list, anyone can tell me or provide me with a reference that explains why the following English-language book would be printed in Leipzig:

John Milton. The Poetical Works of John Milton. Leipsic [Leipzig]: Ernest Fleischer, 1827.

Many thanks.
