A very rare Dutch translation by an unknown translator P.R. of Antoine Dilly's "Traité de l'ame et de la connoissance des bêtes, ou apres avoir demontré la spiritualité de l'ame de l'homme l'on explique par la seule machine, les actions les plus surprenantes des animaux, suivant les principles de Descartes. Par A.D.**** [Antoine Dilly]. According to Thijssen - Schoute, Nederlands Cartesianisme, pp. 196 - 198, not much is known about Dilly apart from the fact that he was a priest at Embrun. This is the earliest Dutch translation. In 1699 another translation appeared from the hand of de Reus, appended to his translation of LeGrand's "Dissertatio de carentia sensus et cognitionis in brutis" (London, 1675). Antoine Dilly's publication was intended as a defence against Ignace Gaston Pardies's publication 'Discours de la connoissance des bestes' (Paris, 1672). Many, among whom Dilly, believed this 'Discours' to be a mock attack on the theory of Descartes, for it conveyed the arguments pro Descartes very well and did not make much work of the arguments against him.:
