First edition printed in Lyon by Bonhomme, this fac-simile was re-printed by Chomarat in the year 1984 (Les amis de Michel Nostradamus).
We know two copies the Albi and the Vienna copy, this displayed below is the Albi one.
 
The Utrecht edition was discovered some years ago and there is no other copy in the world. Actually no one has printed a facsimile so enjoy it! ( unfortunately the quality is not very good but it's readable).
 
This edition printed in the year 1557 by Du Rosne in Lyon was considered the second after the Bonhomme edition of the year 1555 but after the discovery of the 1557 in Utrecht now is the third one, this edition was re-printed in facsimile by Chomarat (editions Chomarat 160, rue Vendome 69003 Lyon France) in the year 1993.
 
The most famous edition of the "centuries" by Benoist Rigaud in the year 1568. It is split into two books, the copy has taken from the library of Lyon. There are various copies all reported in the Benazra book (repertoire Chronologique Nostradamique, a must for a scholar)
 
Chavigny's book was printed in the year 1594 and together with "les Pleiades" represents the work of the Nostradamus's secretary so I think he read the original and probably he knew some of the secret thought of his master. As far as I am concerned there is no facsimile of this book.
 
Chavigny's book was printed in the year 1607 and together with "la Premiere face du ianus" represents the work of the Nostradamus's secretary so I think he read the original and probably he knew some of the secret thought of his master. As far as I am concerned there is no facsimile of this book.
