Remarks

Cf. [DuNoyer, Anne Marguerite Petit] Lettres historiques et galantes, par Madame de C**. Ouvrage curieux, 1-7 (Cologne [The Hague]: P. Marteau, 1707-18).link The preface offers a not very charming portrait of Madame DuNoyer, the author of numerous scandalous titles, her biography including her present family circumstances, the social and economic situation, her character with the explicit mentioning of her fat body - all making it likely that the preface was written by Delarivier Manley (allegedly fat and definitely scandalous herself) - which is espacially likely as the preface includes some remarks on good and bad scandal mongering seeing Steele on the wrong side.
