Containing the letters of Georges-Louis Le Sages and above all the ones written to the Amsterdam bookseller Marc Michel Rey, a countryman and confidant of J.J. Rousseau, a large part of the first volume leads the reader into the French-speaking world and into the intellectual and political disputes of the pre-revolutionary era. Gleim‘s letters and in particular the correspondence with Wieland, which started in 1770/71, and with Sophie von La Roche enable an understanding of literary events in Germany. The friendship with Goethe, which began in the summer of 1774, is the decisive element in the last parts of the volume.
