Franklin on Franklin by Benjamin Franklin( Book )

3 editions published in 1798 in French and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Benjamin Franklin's Autobiography ends in 1758, some thirty years before he died. Those three decades included some of the statesman's greatest triumphs, yet instead of including them in his memoir, Franklin spent the years continually revising his original text." "Franklin on Franklin stands as the first autobiographical account of a great American life. By returning to a newly recovered early draft of the Autobiography, author Paul M. Zall strips away later layers of moralizing and revision to reveal the story as Franklin first wrote it: how a poor boy from Boston used hard work and his wits to become America's first world-class citizen. To cover Franklin's career as a diplomat and as the only signatory of all threes key documnents of the American Revolution, Zall interweaves autobiographical comments from Franklin's personal letters and private journals."--Jacket

7 editions published in 1787 in French and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lors de leur escale au Cap, les deux naturalistes "officiels" de l'expédition, Reinhold et Georg Forster, proposent à Sparrman à les accompagner pendant le voyage. Ce dernier participe ainsi, entre le 22 novembre 1772 et le 22 mars 1775, jour du retour au Cap, au deuxième voyage de Cook. Son récit de ce voyage est très succinct et n'occupe qu'une partie du T. 1 (P. 91-115). La partie principale de l'ouvrage est consacrée à l'Afrique du Sud
An inquiry into the nature and causes of the wealth of nations by Adam Smith( Book )

6 editions published between 1790 and 1795 in French and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erschienen 1776, also vor rund 240 Jahren, gilt ›Der Wohlstand der Nationen‹ nach wie vor als einer der einflussreichsten Texte der Neuzeit, als Geburtsstunde der modernen Volkswirtschaftslehre. Adam Smith (1723-1790) hat hier zentrale Konzepte der Ökonomie wie etwa die Theorie des freien Marktes oder der Arbeitsteilung entscheidend geprägt. >>Die unsichtbare Hand<< wurde zum geflügelten Wort. Diese von Georg von Wallwitz auf die zeitlos gültigen Inhalte komprimierte Ausgabe lädt dazu ein, den Standardtext der Wirtschaftswissenschaft neu oder wieder zu entdecken. (Quelle: buchhandel.de)

Histoire du canal du Midi, connu précédemment sous le nom de canal de Languedoc by Antoine-François Andréossy( Book )

2 editions published in 1800 in French and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Officially opened in 1682, the Canal du Midi, designed and built by the engineers Pierre-Paul Riquet and François Andréossy, stretched from Toulouse to the Mediterranean. The present work was written by Andréossy's descendant, Antoine-François Andréossy (1761-1828), a French general and diplomat. A member of the Académie des Sciences, he analyses here the terrain of the south of France to show how and why the canal was built. Notably, the work became known for the author's argument that Riquet had usurped the glory that really belonged to his ancestor. Concluding with original documents from the period of the canal's construction, along with an appendix giving details on the canal's route, the book is reissued here in its first edition of 1800. A second edition appeared in 1804, and a third edition was begun but never completed
