Machen did an unabridged translation in 12 volumes of Casanova's Memoirs in 
1894, which was frequently reprinted. So no, the significant abridgement wasn't 
created expressly for the Modern Library. I don't know why the translator 
isn't credited, but it's far from being the only ML title where that's the case.

all best,
