He died in Peking in 1793. His Manchu dictionary Dictionnaire tatare-mantchou-français (Paris, 1789) was a work of great value, the language having been previously quite unknown in Europe. His other writings are to be found chiefly in the Mémoires concernant l'histoire, les sciences et les arts des Chinois (15 volumes, Paris, 1776-1791). The Vie de Confucius, the twelfth volume of that collection, was more complete and accurate than any predecessors.
