14 editions published between 1859 and 1896 in English and French and held by 163 libraries worldwide
Both in its original French and its many translations, The Adventures of Telemachus was one of the most popular and revered works of the eighteenth century. During that time, more than ten English prose and poetry versions appeared, including this masterful prose translation by Smollett. Known for his novels Roderick Random and The Expedition of Humphry Clinker, Smollett was also a gifted translator. The Adventures of Telemachus was his final translation, and is one of the finest versions of the work. Long a disputed title in the Smollett canon, it is fully restored to his credit by Leslie A. Chilton
Les provinciales; ou, Les lettres écrites par Louis de Montalte à un provincial de ses amis et aux RR. PP. jésuites by Blaise Pascal( Book )
17 editions published between 1829 and 1904 in English and French and held by 163 libraries worldwide
Written in defense of Antoine Arnauld, an opponent of the Jesuits and a defender of Jansenism who was on trial before the faculty of theology in Paris for his controversial religious works, Pascal's 18 Provincial letters deal with divine grace and the ethical code of the Jesuits. They included a blow against the relaxed morality that the Jesuits were said to teach and that was the weak point in their controversy with Port-Royal. Pascal quotes freely Jesuit dialogues and discrediting quotations from their own works, sometimes in a spirit of derision, sometimes with indignation. Cf. Encyclopaedia Britannica Online, 17 Sept. 2008
