Notes: Attribution - several editions of the 'Instructions d'un père à ses enfans, sur le principe de la vertu et du bonheur', 'Instructions d'un père à ses enfans sur la religion naturelle et révélée' and 'Instructions d'un père à ses enfans sur la nature et sur la religion' all by Trembley were produced in Geneva and Neuchâtel from 1775. They existed in 2, 3, 5 or 6 volumes according to how they were bundled together. The STN often accounted for various versions of the title under simply 'Instructions d'un père à ses enfans', often without volume information, and thus in the majority of cases it is not possible to verify exactly which edition was being sold. The (Neuchâtel, 1779) Samuel Fauche edition, in 2 volumes makes up many of the sales, but versions produced by Chirol in Geneva in 1779 and 1783 were also traded. The STN also accounted for this work as 'oeuvres de Trembley' (and variations upon this title) and 'Trembley complet'.
