Notes to François Poulain de la Barre

1. When citing from De l’égalité des deux sexes, I use Desmond Clarke’s translation (T1en), except for some passages, where Vivien Bosley’s translation (TTen) is closer to the original. All citations from De l’éducation des dames and De l’excellence des homes use Bosley’s translation (TTen). I also give references to Marie-Frédérique Pellegrin’s modern French edition (TTfr).
