Notes

Apparently the first complete French edition. An earlier translation of the first part only had been made by C. Planché (tentatively dated 1800 in the BM Cat.)

With a short preface by the translator, in English, in which he notes that he has made a few small alterations to the original work, suppressing that which relates only to England and replacing it with subjects relating to France. Mrs. Barbauld published the first part of her very popular Lessons for children in 1778 because she could find no book adapted to the comprehension of little children. The earliest French edition in the NUC is dated 1812; the earliest Pasquier translation in the BM Cat. is dated 1821.
