Although Sabin describes Les veillées de Cayenne as a “large collection of proclamations, laws, and orders issued at Cayenne, between 1790–1797” in fact it is a collection of Francesco Soave’s moral tales (originally published in “Novelle Morali”; Milano: Presso Gaetano Motta, 1782) and translated from Italian by Pierre Auguste Marie Miger (1771–1837).
