  3. This edition also contains a short preface by Legley that is attached to the photocopy of the autograph. The fourth sentence of this text, however, is quoted incompletely in the first edition, therefore we quoted it here in its entirety: L'explication sera tellement parfaite que la pièce sera superflue.
