Following the work of Pierre Larousse on the Grand dictionnaire Universel, this ten-volume dictionary was published between 1982 and 1985 by éditions Larousse. It is an encyclopedia and a dictionary merged in a single alphabetical listing. Beneath the standard dictionary (meanings, usages) entry comes the encyclopedic section.

Articles are generously illustrated by photographs, maps, chronologies and diagrams.
