This directory contains records of all books translated into French and published in France from 1810 to 1840, as they were recorded in the Bibliographie de la France, which was the basic source of information. Although relatively brief, this period has been very important for modern cultural history. The translations produced then have certainly played a prominent role in the evolution of French literature. This volume allows for the first time a comprehensive and comparative analysis of translations of all languages and all authors. The book is primarily a source of multidisciplinary documentation, which lists as exhaustively as possible the presence of translations in all cultural disciplines that have been distinguished by the Bibliography of France: Theology, Jurisprudence, Science and Arts, Literature and History. The book also contains two indexes: one with the names of the authors and one with those of the translators.
