He compiled and published an exploration collection and several histories, particularly about medieval France. For geography, his most important contribution was publication of the French edition of Carey & Lea’s American Atlas in 1825. The French edition is generally considered in high regard as compared to other editions, as it has quality paper and superior engraving.
