Later printing of the first edition in clean unclipped dust jacket. Translated and Edited by Kenneth Roberts and Anna M. Roberts; Preface by Kenneth Roberts; Introduction by Stewart L. Mims. Color frontispiece painting by James Bingham. Very clean rust brown buckram cloth boards with black title box, gold lettering on spine. No fading or wear. Binding is tight and square, hinges are sound - no cracking. Pages and edges are clean with blank endpapers - no names, writing or bookplates. 394 pages with index. Clean illustrated jacket is unchipped, some wear and tiny tears at base of spine, not price clipped. Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. Moreau's journal is filled with intimate details about life in America when the Republic was young. He discusses with candor the prevalence of divorce, cost of confinement, the shameless behavior of French emigres toward their American hosts, the prudery of the average American woman, the prevalence of prostitution. Much that is in this book had never before been mentioned in narratives about early America, and all the color and delicacy of the original have been brilliantly preserved in the Robertses' translation.
