[Sca-cooks] Question about a spice recipe

Some time ago (early 2004) I got a recipe on this list from Thorvald for a
spice powder from Taillevent.  The number is 222, but, in my translation by
Scully, there is no 222.  The translated recipe:

222. Spice Powder.

Grind ginger (4 parts), cassia (3 1/2 parts), nutmeg (2 parts), pepper (1
1/2 parts), long pepper, cloves, grains of paradise and galingale (1 part
each).  (A recipe quoted by Pichon et al., p. 26.)

Does anyone have the Pichon translation?  If so, could you please send me
the original French version...along with any other information in the book?
I made the spice powder yesterday and it's really great...
