      You raally need to provide a bit more data.
      A pic of the full page of the portion above might give some extra hints.
      Can you look for the 'colophon'?

      Sometimes in French texts you will find the information at the end of the book.

      Crepy were a family of publishers and engravers.
      Crepy ex = Crepy excudit = Crepy engravers (or publishers)
      Crépy, Jean Baptiste; publisher; French print publisher, 1753-1790
      Crépy-en-Valois is a commune in the Oise department in northern France. It is located 57.8 km northeast of the center of Paris.

      It seems that Crépy were situated in Paris in rue S. Jacques.
      A Paris chez Crepy rue S. Jacques. (près la rue de la Parcheminerie).
