First edition, with errata on the title-page verso: This address to Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord was written in response to his report "Liberté des cultes religieux," made to the Assemblée nationale constituante's Comité de constitution on 7 May 1791, regarding the Civil Constitution of the Clergy. There was also a Chez Dufresne printing later in the same year.
Uncommon: WorldCat and NUC Pre-1956 locate only four U.S. institutional holdings of this first edition.
