Richelet's »Dictionnarie françois« (1860) is the first fully monolingual French dictionary of definitions. In spite of its primacy and the enormous success it enjoyed throughout the 18th century, this dictionary has escaped recognition up to this day. The study provides a complete bibliography of Richelet's lexikographic work, in which over 60 editions are described, annotated, compared and pinpointed in European and American libraries. This inventory should provide a basis for rectifying numerous earlier meta-lexikographic judgements of the dictionary. An analysis of the possible sources and of descendants of the dictionary completes the bibliographic part. An examination of the formal aspects of presentation in the first edition as well as a detailed biography conclude the study.
