Pierre Bayle – Dictionnaire historique et critique | 2015

The Dictionnaire historique et critique is a masterpiece, never reissued in French with the original layout since 1804. 211 years after the last edition, and 18 years after my first attempt to redesign this complex tabular layout, on April 13, 2015, a partial new edition of Pierre Bayle’s most famous work is now available again in French. You can download my foreword, where I detail the reconstruction of this book, with some samples of the Dictionnaire itself. Also check this link to learn more about the Dictionnaire historique et critique.
