Dictionnaire de l'Academie francoiseIn two Volumes
France - Pierre Beaume Nismes, 1786. France - Pierre Beaume Nismes, 1786 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. This wonderfully informative scarce set of french dictionaries are divided into two volumes. Volume one focuses onwords beginning with A to K. Which then allows volume two to define words beginning with L to Z. Supervised by the Academie francaise, often called simply l'Academie,who arean organisation which moderates the French language. The primary role of the Academie francaise is to regulate the French language by determining standards of acceptable grammar and vocabulary, as well as adapting to linguistic change by adding new words and updating the meanings of existing ones. Due to the status of English in the world, the Academie's task tends to be focused on lessening the influx of English terms into French, by choosing or inventing French equivalents. Originally this set ofdictionaries were not sold to the general public, so the Academie's workwas incorporated into society by the creation of laws and regulations. Some banners and initials illustrated in black throughout. Complete in two volumes. Condition: In original calf bindings. Externally, both heavily worn with back board of first volumeand front board of second volume, detached but present. All hinges are week and may detach in the post.
