All bar two (nos .51 and .52) were originally published by P. Mariette, which could be Pierre Mariette I (b.c.1603, d.1657) or his son Pierre Mariette II (b.1634, d. 1716) the latter being described on the BM webste as “the greatest publisher of the century.” Pierre Mariette II married the widow of fellow printer, printmaker and print publisher Francois Langlois in 1655, becoming in the process the step-father of Nicolas Langlois I (b.1640, d.1703) whose own son, Nicolas Langlois II (b.c.1670, d.1707) appears to be the publisher of nos .51 and .52
