Collection : Métamorphoses du livre

In the tradition of the Ecole française d'histoire du livre (French History of the Book School), "Métamorphoses du livre" includes original or translated works, from all periods and geographical areas, which introduce new approaches and reveal how a text becomes a book, how books and published articles, from physical tomes to digital editions, are made up and how they change and spread.
The "Métamorphoses du livre" collection is published by the Institut d'histoire du livre which incorporates the École Normale Supérieure in Lyon, the École Nationale des Chartes, the École Nationale Supérieure des Sciences de l'Information et des Bibliothèques, the Bibliothèque Municipale (City Library) in Lyon and the Musée de l'Imprimerie (Museum of printing) in Lyon.

Philip Stewart
Métamorphoses du livre
Rousseau was always afraid that his works might be forged and that the Rousseau who reached future generations would be someone other than himself. Over a long period of time, he was most often in disagreement with Voltaire, except when they were both considered to be the most glorious or most reprehensible representatives of the Enlightenment.
