Beautiful edition by Jacques-Henri Bernardin de Saint Pierre who let himself be carried away by his passion for adventures and left with all the less hesitation, as he seemed to be authorized to attempt the application of his ideas of colonization in Madagascar.
He stayed there for three years and contributed to providing valuable information for the knowledge and development of the Ile de France, today Mauritius. (Brunet, V, 58, “work that has become rare”)
