Catalogue Note

This edition, which is "augmentée d'une seconde partie", was published in the same year as the "second edition" (see lot 262). They are however quite different: this one has a double-page plate and also a second part, neither of which appear in the "second edition". The additional part is included in order to address both the practice and the theory of the sector.
