This copy is extra-illustrated with a frontispiece depicting [in trans.] " the costume of the doctors and other people visiting those stricken with plague" which consisted of a leather cloak, a mask with eye slots made of crystal, and a long nose piece filled with perfume. This costume was designed by Charles de Lorme, physician of Louis XIII, but the illustration is first attested in a Traité de la Peste of 1721 (a title whose shadow can barely be made out in the image).
