This critical travel account is the result of a literary journey Franz Joseph Sulzer (1727-1791) made together with his son in the summer of 1782 to Austria, Hungary, Bavaria and Alsace. During this journey they visited many monasteries and libraries and Sulzers got acquainted with many scholars such as Johann Jacob Bodmer, Johann Caspar Lavater, Salomon Gessner, Johann Jacob Hess, the publisher J. Turneisen and Isaak Iselin in Basel. In Freiburg he met the professors Franz Jos. Bopp and Jos. Anton Petzeck, who advised him to try to get the professorship for Statistics at the Hochschule in Vienna. Back in Kronstadt, however, he returned to the army with the rank Rittmeister und Auditor im Dragonerregimente Savoyen. The author of the pasquinade addresses and criticizes the enlightened Sulzer as the wandering Don Quixote of his time.Slightly browned, otherwise in very good condition.l Allgemeine Deutsche Bibliothek Lx (1785), p. 185; Vd18 Very fine condition; Worldcat (8 copies); for the original work by Sulzer: Holzmann-Bohatta Vi, p. 21, no. 589."
