Written in 1793 by Count Volney, this book was considered somewhat controversial. Volney had little problem establishing from firsthand observations and study that early Nile Valley Africans had in fact provided a basis for the civilization of his time. This book remains a profound and helpful reference for those who are trying to gain undistorted access to the African past

47 editions published between 1787 and 2014 in French and English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The French author and traveller Constantin-François de Chasseboeuf (1757-1820) adopted the pen name Volney, which combined the name of Voltaire and Ferney, where the great philosopher lived. A friend of Thomas Jefferson and other Enlightenment figures, Volney used an inheritance to further his education by travelling to Ottoman Egypt and the historical region of Syria, visiting areas of present-day Lebanon and Israel. He chose these lands as he believed he would gain political and philosophical insights from their ancient heritage. Very little had been written in the West about these areas before he published this two-volume account in 1787. It enjoyed great popularity and even accompanied Darwin aboard the Beagle on his own voyage of discovery decades later. Reissued here is the revised and corrected French second edition, which also appeared in 1787. Volume 1 delves into the geography, ethnic divisions, religious beliefs, commerce and politics of Egypt and Syria
Superstition in all ages: by Paul Henri Thiry Holbach( )

14 editions published in 1795 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A leading figure of the French Enlightment, Paul Henri Thiry, Baron d'Holbach (1723-1789), was an acquaintance of Diderot, Rousseau, and Hume, among others, and a prolific contributor of scientific articles to Diderot's famous Encyclopedie. A man not only of considerable wealth and influence, but great generosity, he was known among friends as the "maitre d'hotel of philosophy" because he so often entertained noted philosophers and intellectuals of the day at his home. When he published his radical reviews on religion, he felt constrained to use pseudonyms. Advocating a philosophy of atheistic materialism, he vigorously argued against all religious interpretations of life calling them superstition and taking special aim at the Christian worldview of his day." "Good Sense, published in 1772 under the pseudonym Jean Meslier, systematically presents the atheistic challenge to religion, critiquing point by point every contention of religion from the nature of God to the existence of the soul, belief in miracles, heaven and hell, the divine right of kings, the role of the priesthood, and many other points of dogma and tradition."--BOOK JACKET
