Is the following spelling containing long 'S's (used in Middle French) correct?
The spelling is very correct, it didn't change since when this famous sentence was coined by Descartes in 1637 (later cogito ergo sum in 1644).
The typography matches what was used it that time, only the final s has its current shape while the other ones are using the now obsolete long variant.
