M. de Burigny (Jean Lévesque), 'The Life of the Truly Eminent and Learned Hugo Grotius', 1754 (Book I, p. 38), claims that 'De omni genere studiorum' was written by Grotius as a letter to French Ambassador in Holland M. du Maurier and later printed without Grotius' permission. A later edition appeared in Amsterdam, 1645.
