André Morellet project
A la mémoire
André Morellet (1727–1819), influential French law reformer and political economist, habitué of the salons, friend of Benjamin Franklin and Voltaire. Hundreds of the letters have been published previously, but never in one place. This will be the first time all the known letters, including many never previously published, are brought together into one coherent work with new and revised annotations.
The André Morellet project is a joint undertaking of the Voltaire Foundation and EE, working with the editor of the original Oxford critical edition (Lettres d'André Morellet. Ed. Dorothy Medlin et al. Oxford: Voltaire Foundation, 1991–1996). This edition was supplemented across three later volumes of SVEC:
- "André Morellet: texts and contexts", ed. Dorothy Medlin et al. Oxford: Voltaire Foundation, SVEC 2003:10;
- "André Morellet's correspondence in 1780 and 1782", ed. Dorothy Medlin et al. Oxford: Voltaire Foundation, SVEC 2004:07, pp. 3–27;
- "André Morellet and the Trudaines", ed. Dorothy Medlin. Oxford: Voltaire Foundation, SVEC 2005:12, pp. 117–127; "'Vive Louis-le-désiré!': André Morellet et la restauration de la monarchie, 1814–1817", ed. Dorothy Medlin. Oxford: Voltaire Foundation, SVEC 2005:12, pp. 129–154.
Since publication of Morellet's letters across those VF volumes, the editor has discovered significant numbers of new letters. These have been incorporated into this new digital edition.
Editorial team: Dorothy Medlin; with support from members of the Voltaire Foundation and Electronic Enlightenment Project teams.
