Bodmer Johann Jakob : Noah. Attempted from the German of Mr. Bodmer. In twelve books.

Catherine Talbot to Elizabeth Carter, 10 October 1767: 'Pray, pray get on as fast as you can with your Arabic, that you may be fit to translate for us forty-four Assemblies, or ingenious conversations, by Hariri, the son of Himam; there are fifty of them, six just translated by a gentleman of Cambridge, and we are undone to know whether the whole fifty can be equally dull and unedifying. Did you ever read Noah? it seems to me even in the translation delightfully fine.'

Century: 1700-1799     Reader/Listener/Group: Catherine Talbot      Print: Book
