*Les Journées Amusantes*(Paris: G. Saugrain, Charles le Clerc, Ándre Morin, 1722–31), there were eight editions of Eliza Haywood's translation of this work, under the title

*La Belle Assemblee*(detailed in my

*Bibliography*).

However,

*Les Journées Amusantes*(v.2 frontispiece, above) was also translated into Italian (the first six days only) by Pietro Chiari, as

*Li Giorni di Divertimento*(1758?; 1777), German, under the title

*Angenehme und lehrreiche Erzählungen in vergnügten Tagen*(1761), into and into Spanish, of which there are a faithful and free versions

*Jornadas Divertidas, Politicas sentencias y hechos memorables*by Baltasar Driguet (1792–97) and

*Dias alegres*(1792-1798) by Gaspar Zavala y Zamora.

At various times, and for various reasons, I have gone hunting for information about these other translations, and then forgotten, buried or lost that information. So, I thought I would start a page where I could aggregate information about, and links to, editions of these translations—for myself, and anyone else interested in

*Les Journées Amusantes*.
