    I don't think we've come across a publisher named "Graf and Jerez" before

    J. Graf is a known printer for her Royal Highness the Queen at the time, amongst other things

    I was able to look at an original copy, and I think it is Graf and Jorez

    There is also a well known Belgian printer who did some almanacs and science texts in Brussels called Jean-Baptiste Jorez

    But his time range was ~1750-1798

    J. Graf is recorded as having worked in the firm "Graf and Soret" http://bit.ly/1LBKel1

    I'm looking at the highest magnification of the original available and that could be an s, with a short spike on the t with flourish...

    Ah, I think we have it. I had thought it looked like a 'S' as well. If the BM confirms a Graf and Soret, then that must be it.
