This chapter examines Swiss lawyer and historian Isaak Iselin's review of Christian Friedrich Junger's German translation of Adam Ferguson's Essay on the History of Civil Society. Iselin wrote his review in November 1768, which was a fascinating blend of small rebukes woven into framework of laudatory approbation. This chapter discusses the circumstances surrounding Iselin's review which might have influenced the contents of his article published in Allgemeine deutsche Bibliothek.

Keywords:   Isaak Iselin, Allgemeine deutsche Bibliothek, Adam Ferguson, Christian Friedrich Junger, German translation
