A selection of works taken from Le Chansonnier françois, 1760--62 and other larger anthologies, edited by Sautreau de Marsy (cf. Barbier III, 841). Volume I is a line-for-line reprint of the first edition published in 1778 with a new engraved title by C.P. Marillier dated 1782. The second volume, dated 1780 in the Soane copy with an engraved title by Marillier dated 1779, lacks an edition statement and may have been first issued with the second edition of the same year; copies of the 1778 edition lack the statement 'Fin du Tome premier' on p. 374. Included in the second volume is an index of authors in the two volumes. A third volume is found in some sets; the copy at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek collates 423, [1] p. with an undated and unsigned engraved title, a half-title reading 'Le Petit Chansonnier François. Tome Troisieme' and signed 'A' and the main text commencing on sig. A2.
