Of the monographs incorporated by Franklin in this work several had appeared separately in book form, notably the history of the Mazarino (1860) Nôtre Dame (1863) Faculté de médecine (1864) Abbaye de Saint Victory (1865), and a series of the shorter notices had been printed in the Bulletin du bibliophile 1864-1870/1 under the caption "Les anciennes bibliothéques de Paris" while some others first printed in the present work were later published separately, designated as second editions, with additions and corrections: Bibliothéque du roi (1875), La Sorbonne (1875)
The illustrations are facsimile reproductions of early views, plans, autograph signatures, manuscripts, book-plates, art bindings, etc. A contribution by L. M. Tisserand, "Ancienne bibliothèque de l'Hotel de Ville", (t. III, p. 181-300) was reissued as a separate volume of the "Histoire générale de Paris" the same year (1873) under title: La prémiére bibliothèque de l'Hotel de Ville de Paris (1760-1797). To this issue an "Avant propos" and index were added. The number of impressions taken of three plates illustrating this article seems to have been insufficient to supply both issues. Tisserand having taken care to have the separate issue supplied first one or the other or all three of the plates are usually lacking in t. III of the "Anciennes bibliothèques" where they are specified in the list of illustrations as no. LIII (port. of Turgot), LIX ("Les bienfaiteurs de la bibliothèque de la ville", 4 port. on 1 pl.), and LXII ("L'eveque de Callinique", port. of Nicolas de Livry). It may also be noted that although volume 3 is dated 1873, that part containing Tisserand's monograph (written 1869) must have been printed before 1871: no reference is made by note or otherwise to the destruction of the library, May 24, 1871, during the Commune, a fact mentioned however in the "Avant propos" to the separate issue.
