2 CD: French Memories of Eighteenth-Century America
Charles H. Sherrill
(1915), 2005, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, PC and Mac, v6, 404 pp, Heritage Books
In his 1903 Journal du Voyage, the Prince de Broglie opined, “The ladies of Philadelphia, although magnificent enough in their costumes, generally do not wear them with much taste. In arranging their hair they have less lightness of touch than our French women. While they have good figures, the lack grace and make their curtsies badly.” This book presents a delightful collection of memoirs from a uniquely French perspective. The author has collected the writings of nearly ninety distinguished French authors, giving their firsthand observations on early American culture, climate, family life and city life in Philadelphia, Charleston, Boston, Newport, Providence, Hartford, New Haven, Albany, Baltimore, New York, New Orleans and Washington. Further comments cover country life, travel, education, colleges, newspapers, interest in public affairs, religious observances, the learned professions, labor and the allied armies. Some of the authors whose notes contributed to this work are Brissot, Chateaubriand, Chotteau, Crevecoeur, Dupont de Nemours, Lafayette, Marchand, Michaux, Pontgibaud, Rochambeau and Talleyrand. Additionally, the author consulted documents at the State Department in Washington, DC, and several English-language diplomatic, historical and military sources. Illustrations depict notable people, places and customs. A new every name index has been added to this edition
