Through today’s mid-day post comes a copy of Professor Ronald L. Meek’s (ed.,) “Turgot on Progress, Sociology and Economics” (Cambridge University Press, 1973). It includes his (I expect reliable) translation of Turgot’s Reflexions (1778)! Profess Meek was in the team that editedd the Glasgow Edition of Adam Smith's Works and Correspondence.
I have yet to see a French edition, preferably 1788 (just to close the circle – a necessary step in detective work and academic research) to check the originals.
Anybody who can help is most welcome to contact me (gk – at – ebs.hw.ac.uk)
