No date, but most likely 1853. Often 1858 is mentioned as the year of publication for this Garnier Fréres edition, however, the second edition was published by Curmer in 1851 and the drawings by prince Alexis Soltykoff were "hot" in the early 1850's, so that 1853 is far more likely as year of publication than 1858.
In this edition partly the stones of the 1848 Amyot edition have been used, partly the stones of the Curmer edition and partly new stones were used.
The plates have been lithographed by Cupper, De Rudder, Gerlier, Lehnert, Marchais, Robinson and Walter and were printed by Auguste Bry and Lemercier.
