Note
  • In the "Avertissement" (v. 1), the editor assures readers that this edition of 5 v. (in 8vo) conforms entirely with the one in 2 vols. (in 4to) that had originally appeared in 1808. The only difference with this one is that, while the orig. version had been accompanied by an atlas of 20 plates, this one does not have an accompanying atlas. Instead, just 2 of the maps from the atlas were chosen as most appropriate for this publication. The first of those is in vol. 1: it's the map that makes up the land from as far southeast as Yucatan, to as far northwest as the coasts of New California (originally no. 2 in the atlas). The other of the plates is in vol. 2: it's a graph that shows (all in one view) the elevations of the land from the Pacific Ocean to the Antilles (originally nos. 12 and 13 in the atlas)
  • Errata for each vol. ([4] p.) tipped in at end of v. 5
  • Each vol. includes its own index; these are all compiled into an exhaustive index at the end ("Table alphabetique des matieres contenues dans cet ouvrage"): v. 5, p. [195]-345
