One collective title page, printed in red and black, and three additional tile pages for the separate parts. Additional title page for 'Ordonnance de Monseigneur l'Illustrissieme & Reverendissime Hardovin de Perefixe'.
The imprint on the title page is fictitious, and the work was actually printed in Paris.
