Curiously volume one calls this the "Sixteenth Edition" while volume two calls it the "Seventeenth Edition." Both have the same imprint and are in matching binding. Originally published by Fenelon in 1699, this famous retelling of the Greek myth proved the authors undoing as the King of France took its content as a hidden criticism. There have been many editions and translations.
