Lydall. Originally written in 1730, Voltaire's risqué version of the tale of Joan of Arc was first printed in a pirated edition in 1755. Over twenty piracies subsequently appeared until, impatient of inaccurate texts, Voltaire completely revised his early manuscript with a preface (by 'Don Apuleius Risorius' i.e. Voltaire), five new cantos and a rewritten final canto for the first authorised edition, printed by Cramer, Geneva, with plates by Gravelot. This smaller format piracy is unillustrated but includes the new preface and cantos.
