Passages from the following authors are included: François-Joachim de Pierre de Bernis, Pierre Corneille, Jean de La Fontaine, Claude-Joseph Dorat, Stanislas de Boufflers, Jean-Baptiste Rousseau, Nicolas Chamfort, Jean Racine, and Voltaire.

There is an advertisement for a paper maker in Paris pasted into the front cover of the book.
