Introduction

On this page we plan to list in chronological order the works of Frédéric Bastiat. This will include his articles, pamphlets, published book, and his correspondence. We will provide the date (if known), the title in English and French, its place of original publication, its location in the 7 volume French edition of his "complete works" edited by Paillottet and published by Guillaumin, and its location in the Liberty Fund English translation of his works.

We are also creating a chronological version of Bastiat's writings which only be available online. As the printed version becomes available in digital form we will add it to the chronological version. Thus, this is a work in progress. We have divided Bastiat's works into 4 parts based upon the key periods and events in his life:

  1. Early Writings: The Bayonne and Mugron Years, 1819–1844
  2. The “Paris” Writings I: Bastiat and the Free Trade Movement (Oct. 1844 - Feb. 1848)
  3. The “Paris” Writings II: Bastiat the Politician, Anti-Socialist, and Economist (Feb. 1848 - Dec. 1850)
  4. The Unfinished Treatises: The Social and Economic Harmonies and The History of Plunder (1850–51)

See also A Reader's Guide to the Works of Frédéric Bastiat (1801-1850).

This is a work in progress as the volumes of the Liberty Fund gradually appear over the next few years, beginning in 2012.

Sources

The main source for this translation is the 7 volume 2nd edition of the Oeuvres complètes de Frédéric Bastiat, edited by Prosper Paillottet and Roger de Fontenay (1862-64) with additional letters drawn from a collection published in 1877, Lettres d’un habitant des Landes, Frédéric Bastiat. (Paris: A. Quantin, 1877). [See below for details]. Paillottet took material from Bastiat's unpublished papers, his published books, and from a number of journals and other publications which are listed below. Bastiat's papers are not accessible to us but wherever possible we have checked Paillottet's edition against the originals. Additional material which was not in Paillottet's edition has been added when we have come across it, such as some letters and journal articles discovered by Jean-Claude Paul-Dejean and transcriptions of speeches discovered by David Hart. These additions have been indicated in the text.
