Notes:

The printer’s mark from the title page is in the form of a winged lion with the head of a bird, en passent, one paw raised, standing on a plinth on whic is inscribed a date, MSCSL, which is, 1690, presumably the year in which the printer was founded.

The title page says the printer was in Stuttgart, Verlag der J. G. Cotta’schen Buchhandlung.

The title page is also the book cover.
