Lady Morgan’s popular book was published both in French and English in 1817, with second editions following in the same year. This translation into French by Phillipe Alexandre Lebrun de Charmettes adds a number of notes and observations on her work. Lady Morgan’s book also inspired another commentary, that of Auguste Jean Baptiste Defauconpret, Observations sur l'ouvrage intitule: La France; par Lady Morgan.
