Catalogue Note

There is a catchword on the final verso of volume 2, "Ode", indicating that there should have been a further section. According to CCFr, however, the volumes should be bound the other way round, with the Pseaumes in volume 1 and the Bergeries in volume 2, in which case the catchword does link to the Odes at the beginning of the following volume.
