Issued in 22 livraisons, 1821-23. The 21st livraison ("21e et dernière livr.") 1822 was followed by a "22e et dernière livraison," 1823; the latter (2 maps with text) is wanting in some copies.

Îles Mariannes et Philippines. VI. Traversée de Cronstadt au Chili. VII. Kamtchatka, le golfe de Kotzebue et la terre des Tchouktchis.
In the present issue all the plates are colored. The number of the plates is given as 110 by Quérard, La France littéraire, Brunet and Graesse. The Catal. général ... du Départment de la marine et des colonies, t. III, p. 217, quotes 103 plates, one portrait and one map; the Bibliographie de la France, 105 plates and two maps, the Catalogue of the Brit. mus. (Natural history) 105 plates and three maps.
In this copy parts VI-VII are bound before part I; according to the "Avis au relieur" at end, this is the correct order.
