About this Item: Paris, Nicolle, u. Mame Impr. 1814., 1814. Orig.Kart. 8° mit Goldpräg. 3 Bände / 3 Volumes (complet) 2 , XVI, 348; 2 , 387; 2 , 415. S. (Kart. Einbände d. Zt. berieben, Ecken l. bestossen, innen guter Zustand) Second French Edition, the second edition to be printed and distributed. Only five complete copies of the original 1810 edition of 10,000 survived Napoleon’s immediate censorship and destruction of the book on the grounds that it was " not French ", and Mme de Stael herself was exiled from France. After journeying through Russia, Finland, and Sweden, she arrived in London where she " received a brilliant reception and was much lionized during the season of 1813 ". (Encyc. Britann., 11th Edn.) In that year John Murray brought out his edition of De L’Allemagne. Mme de Staël made two separate trips to Germany, the first in 1804 in the company of Benjamin Constant, the second in 1807. Her book succeeded in acquainting the French with the literary and philosophical works of Goethe, Schiller, Kant, Fichte, Schelling, and Schlegel, and has been lauded as " perhaps the most remarkable account of one country by a native and inhabitant of another, which exists in literature ". (Ibid.)
