  10. 10. I suppose this one has escaped from La Brède before the 20th century (no mark such as "Bibliotheca bredensis" stamped on it - except perhaps on the back of the title page? it is a bit difficult to see it clearly, but it doesn't really matter).
  11. 11. UB Gent can be proud of it: this copy of Conring is the only book of Montesquieu's library in Château de La Brède (more than 3300 items) which has ever been digitalized... Hard to believe, but it's true.
