Jehannot styles himself ‘libraire et imprimeur’ in the colophon, which suggests a date before January 1515 when he became imprimeur juré; the presence of a quire number on the title page suggests 1514 at the earliest, as this practice seems to occur from about that date.

Catchword pattern: none.
Quire number ‘.xx.c.’ on title page: the book has 20 gatherings (29 and a half sheets).
