Brussels - Bruxelles by Rapin de Thoyras 1744-47

Paul Rapin de Thoyras (1661-1725)

Paul Rapin de Thoyras was a Huguenot historian under English patronage. He compiled a French-language history of England, published in 1724-27. It was published monthly with illustrations. All volumes of his work were translated to English in 14 volumes from 1727 by the Reverend Nicolas Tindal. Tindal also added a "Continuation" to the History, covering the years from the accession of James VI to that of George I of Great Britain.

The original version was almost the only English history available in France in the first half of the 18th century.
