"On souscrit chez l'auteur, boulevart Montmartre, No.1" There are two almost identical pamphlets glued together by Ilbert. The text is virtually the same in each but with the addition of an illustration of the longcase regulator in only one. In the title, Aime Jacob describes himself as "Ancien eleve du gouvernment, de L. Berthoud et de Breguet".
