Notes

"The book was never finished. The original plan was to publish two volumes with 160 plates each, to be published in 24 fascicles. Publication was discontinued, however, after the 15th fascicle (number 3 of the second volume). The text of volume 2 ends abruptly on page 72 in the middle of a sentence. This fascicle was published in 1838"--F.A. Stafleu.

Text printed by Fain and E.-J. Bailly.

The plates are signed by the illustrators (Brongniart; Courtin; Meunier; and Riocreux); the engraver Vielle; the lithographers ve. Noel and Thierry Frérès; and Houbloup, as printer of plates.

Tome II has imprint: A Paris : Crochard et compie ..., 1837.

Plate numbering, t. 1, slightly irregular: 2 plates numbered 34 but no plate 36; numbers 9 bis, 37 bis, 61 bis, 82A, and 82B inserted in the sequence 1-166.

Of t. II only the first livraison (p. 1-72, and leaves of plates numbered 1-30) was published.
