MADAME DE STAEL'S
Mr. Murray is happy in being able to state, that Madame LA BARONNE DE STAEL's interesting Work, whose mysterious suppression has so long excited the curiosity of Europe, will be published by him in the course of the present month (August). The Work is entitled, simply, “ DE L'ALLEMAGNE,” and consists of the result of MADAME DE STAEL's Observations on the Manners, the Society, the Literature, and the Philosophy, of the Germans. An edition, consisting of 10,000 copies, was actually printed at Paris, in the year 1810; and although, in its course through the press, it was submitted to the Literary Police, the whole impression was suddenly destroyed, in consequence of the immediate mandate of Buonaparte. One copy, however, escaped, and from that the present edition is printing. It will contain all the passages originally struck out by the censors of the press; and a copious new preface, developing the causes of this curious and unprecedented literary persecution. The work is otherwise valuable for its acute and lively remarks upon a people, with the present state of whose society and literature we are little acquainted, and who are peculiarly interesting to us, from the part they are acting in the great drama of European politics.—It is known to be the most able work of an author who has already been designated “ as, beyond all comparison, the Arst female writer of the age.”
It will form 3 vols. in 8vo. price ll. 16s.
