"Helen Maria Williams was a poet, novelist, and radical thinker deeply immersed in the political struggles of the 1790s. Her "Letters written in France" is the first and most important of eight volumes chronicling the French Revolution to an England fearful of another civil war. Her twenty-six letters recounting Old Regime tyranny and revolutionary events provide both an apology for the Revolution and a representation of it as a sublime spectacle."

Alexander von Humboldt's account of his monumental scientific expedition to South America and Cuba. Originally published in French between 1814 and 1825, this is the first edition in English ... This classic of scientific exploration was based on the researches of Humboldt and his companion, Aimé Bonpland, during their five-year excursion in South and Central America from 1799 to 1804. The volumes describe the voyage from Spain and the stop in the Canaries; Tobago and the first steps in South America; explorations along the Orinoco; Colombia and the area around Caracas; explorations in the northern Andes; and a visit to Cuba. "Humboldt and Bonpland traveled widely through South and Central America, studying meteorological phenomena and exploring wild and uninhabited country. At Callao, Humboldt measured the temperatures of the ocean current which came to bear his name..." - Hill

«Ces lettres ont été pour la première fois publiées à Londres en 1796... L'auteur est une Anglaise visiblement fort sensée, instruite et intelligente, mais anonyme ; elle ne voulait pas compromettre les amis avec qui elle avait vécu en France, et qu'on aurait pu découvrir, inquiéter ou même persécuter si elle avait mis son nom en tête de son livre... «Elle avait déjà visité la France ; elle y réside pendant les années 1792, 1793, 1794, 1795, à Lille, à Soissons, à Saint-Omer, à Rouen, à Beauvais, à Arras, à Péronne, à Amiens et enfin à Paris. Elle est détenue depuis le mois d'août 1793 jusqu'au mois d'octobre 1794, d'abord chez elle, puis à Arras et à Amiens dans la maison d'arrêt. En prison, elle écrit au jour le jour en caractères abrégés, et garde son journal caché sur elle... «Il est certain qu'un Français, après avoir lu ce livre, trouvera le breuvage amer ; il faut le boire cependant, car il est salutaire. Nous ne connaissons guère de la révolution française que les effets d'ensemble, l'histoire des assemblées et des insurrections de Paris ; du moins nos grands historiens se sont toujours placés à ce point de vue. Il est utile de voir les choses sous un autre aspect, par le détail, et comme elles se passent, au jour le jour, d'après les impressions successives d'un témoin sincère. C'est ainsi que nous les aurions vues, si nous avions vécu alors ; et c'est en lisant de pareils témoignages que véritablement nous nous transportons dans le passé.» -- Contracubierta
