The original edition of Jean-Jacques Rousseau's Émile, published in duodecimo by Duchesne and preserved in the Nagoya University Library, does not contain leaf P, which should be placed at the end of the third volume, and leaf V, which should be placed at the end of the fourth volume. These sheets were inserted at the last moment of printing. It was the errata and the privillège. These sheets are missing in the copy annotated by Rousseau himself, now preserved in the Geneva Library. In addition, some manual inscriptions found in the copy held by Nagoya University suggest that this copy was offered to Alfred-Auguste Cuvillier- Fleury(1802-87) by Louis Bonaparte, Earl of Saint-Leu(1778-1846), father of Napoleon III, in 1820 in Florence, where Cuvillier-Fleury worked as a secretary for Earl of Saint-Leu.
