CommentsA perspective on London and England by minor French author Madame D'Avot (or Davot), who spent the years 1817 and 1818 there. Cultural and political life, the aftermath of the Battle of Waterloo (1815), agriculture, theater, New Bond Street shopping, and Lady Morgan's book on France are among the numerous topics Madame D'Avot covers. During her time in London, D'Avot also translated into French Robert Dodsley's Select Fables. Little is recorded about this interesting author, not even, apparently, her forename.
