A Tour of Two Cities

Eighteenth century London and Paris compared

Authored by Simon Nicolas Henri Linguet
Translated with commentary by Jim Chevallier

This new translation offers readers of English a unique look at eighteenth century London and England generally, compared to Paris and France in the same period. It was written by the sharp-tongued and observant journalist Linguet, who had moved there to start a French periodical far from French censorship. His observations range from overviews of official institutions like the Law and religion to descriptions of houses, furniture, markets. etc.
