Publication
Note
  • Authorship according to Kayser, Holzmann & Bohatta, Palmer and Dippel. Last part (pt. 30) written after the author's death by an anonymous person
  • Account based on various documents and letters, many of them translated from English, French, Spanish and Dutch sources
  • Intended to be collected in three volumes, with 10 parts each (see statements on the title pages of parts 10, 20 and 30: Mit einem Register über den ersten [-dritten] Band); however, no volume title pages were published
  • Title from part 9, 1777, onwards shortened to: Geschichte der Kriege in und ausser Europa, with varying subtitles
  • Parts 1-2 lack imprint
  • Parts 11/12 and 27/28 published as double numbers
  • Dates of publication: 1776 (pts. 1-2); 1777 (pts. 3-9); 1778 (pts. 10-16); 1779 (pts. 17-20); 1780 (pt. 21); 1781 (pts. 22-24); 1782 (pts. 25-26); 1783 (pts. 27/28-29); 1784 (pt. 30)
  • Vignette on many title pages (lacking in parts 7-16, 18-21)
  • Errors in paging
  • 38 leaves of plates, 26 of these folded, mostly unnumbered (the 5 plates numbered 97, 135, 142, 143 and 147 apparently form part of a publisher's series). Ten of the plates issued hand-colored; other plates may also be found in a hand-colored state, rather than in black and white. One folded leaf of plates is a table, printed on its recto only (pt. 14, facing p. 53). The plan in part 4, printed on the verso of a leaf conjugate with the title page, is to be considered a text illustration and hence is not inlcuded in the count of leaves of plates

  • "Bey dem Verleger dieser Geschichte ist zu haben:" (pt. 8: p. [1] at end, verso of p. 117); "Bey dem Verleger dieser Geschichte sind folgende neue Bücher zu haben:" (pt. 23: p. 100); "Neue Bücher, welche bey dem Verleger dieser Geschichte zu haben sind." (pt. 25: p. [1-2] at end)
  • Predominantly on events in America, especially North America. This is also reflected in the direction lines which read: Gesch. von Amerika (pt. 3, 7-11/12, 19-23, 27/28-29); or: Geschich. v. Amerika (pt. 4-5); or: Geschichte von Amerika (pt. 6); the rest of the parts are only designated by their part number
