In 1816, a revised second edition of the work was published under the name Hamelin-Bergeron, who claimed to be the author’s son-in-law. There has been much speculation on the identity of the Bergerons, with some claiming that both names were in fact pseudonyms for eminent Parisian lawyer, Louis-Georges-Isaac Salivet, while others identify them as real figures who published Salivet’s work anonymously.
