After two editions published at Pont-à-Mousson by Jean Appier Hanzelet, in 1624 and 1626, three editions of this book were issued in Paris in 1626, by Rolet Boutonné, Antoine Robinet, and Jean Moreau. The Boutonné and Robinot editions are based on the one printed at Pont-à-Mousson in 1626, which introduced two new questions related to problem 91. Moreau’s edition, promoted as “Augmenté en cette troisième édition de plusieurs problèmes non encors veuz,” contained much more additional material: 13 pages of “Notes,” designated by the initials “D.A.L.G.” Although once conjectured to stand for the Girard Desargues (D[es] A[rgues] L[yonnasi] G[éometre]), the acronym is now presumed to refer to the mathematician Claude Mydorge (1585-1647), who used it together with his name on the title-pages of his own works.
