Note
  • Every vol. has an added illustrated t.p., all dated 1787; t. 1 has: Costumes civils, Europe; t. 2 has: Costumes civils, Asie; t. 3 has: Costumes civils, Afrique; t. 4. has: Costumes civils, Amérique
  • The author's name does not appear on the t.p., because the rights of publication had just been acquired by Pavard. Also, despite the geographical focus implied by the added titles, this ed. did not organize its information by continent; instead topics are alphabetical by the French names for the people or their place name (e.g., Habitant de la Californie, or, Homme de Oonalaska). In the publishers alphabetical contents list in each vol., the labels begin with one of these phrases (which are ignored in alphabetizing): Moeurs & coutumes des ... or Notice historique de ... Each entry opens with 1 or 2 ills. (a male and/or female in indigenous or representative costume), then continues with informative text. Each section has its own pagination; there are 308 plates in all. A complete collation of this work is given in Colas
