This volume analyzes Jacobi’s efforts on behalf of the economic and financial reform, in particular of the regions in Bavaria, but also his failure due to the reactionary forces at the court of Palatinate-Bavaria. It also deals with the Vienna state chancellery‘s involvement in overthrowing the Münster reformer Franz von Fürstenberg as well as the liberal ministry of Christoph von Hohenfeld and Georg von La Roches in Kurtrier. It focuses on the reports written by Wilhelm Heinse during his trip to Italy, which are informative from the perspective of the history of music and art, as well as the commentary on the correspondence with Lessing and Lavater. Further focal points are the notes written by the second son,Georg Arnold, on his parental home and his education which he received from Matthias Claudius in Wandsbek and Amalia von Gallitzin in Münster.
