Re: The double iron in 18-19th century french book

A few notes. Roubo and Salivet were not quite contemporaries in publishing. Roubo's work was published between 1769 and 1775. Roubo died before Salivet's work was first published in 1792-1796. A somewhat different second edition was published 1816.
An English edition was published in 1877 or so.

Bergeron was a pen name for Salivet, who initially hid his identity.
