Les Soirées Helvétiennes, Alsaciennes et Fran-comtoises (Amsterdam, 1771) are generally attributed to A. F. J. Masson, Marquis de Pezay; but the translations are also attributed to J.B.F.C. David. Issued in the same year in an octavo format having frontispiece engravings by de Longueil after C.D.J. Eisen. Includes a preliminary discourse, notes, etc. Latin text facing French translation. The poems of Catullus include the Pervigilium Veneris, and are not arranged in the traditional order. The poems attributed here to C. Cornelius Gallus, formerly published by Aldo Manuzio the Younger, are followed by the elegies on old age of Maximianus Etruscus falsely attributed to Gallus by Pomponius Gauricus in his Life of Gallus; these are here in Latin only. The notes on Tibullus contain a translation of Elegy XIII from the fourth book by Louis Racine.
