Abstract

Voltaire’s satirical novel, Candide, was first published in 1759 when he was 65 years old. Upon publication it caused widespread scandal and was subsequently banned. The introduction to this Nonesuch Press edition by French author Paul Morand (1888-1976) describes Voltaire’s Candide as ‘a sequence of burlesque, breath-taking catastrophes’. Richard Aldington (1892-1962) supplied the translation for this edition and the French artist, Sylvain Sauvage (1888-1948) produced the colourful illustrations. The volume not only complements our French holdings in Special Collections, but also our private press items.
