|In this richly illustrated study, supported by inventories of Rousseau’s botanical library, correspondents and herbaria, Alexandra Cook provides an unprecedented insight into the philosophe’s study and practice of botany. Not simply an intellectual pursuit, it became part of his physical and psychological self-discipline, a precursor to today’s ‘environmental therapy’.|

The Corpus des notes marginales de Voltaire reprints Voltaire’s marginal annotation and markings, in the alphabetical sequence of the books in his library. Of particular interest in volume 8 are the annotations on Rousseau.
Ralph Leigh’s masterly French edition of Rousseau’s correspondence provides essential information about one of the most important figures of the eighteenth century. It is the only edition to contain not only Rousseau’s own letters, but also those addressed to him. It is a major resource of otherwise inaccessible information and of great interest to anyone working on eighteenth-century literature and history of ideas.
