Journey from Paris to Java (Voyage de Paris a Java)
Treaty of the modern stimulants
by Honoré de Balzac

The  author's  journey  to  Java  is  purely  imaginary.  In this  reverie  Balzac  propels  us  into  a  fanciful  Orient of eternal Spring with its luxurious palaces, virgin forests, seductive and dangerous Javanese  girls, Bengalis covered in gold, the fragrance of the volcameria . . . So far unpublished. The treaty whic h forms the second part of the book is mainly devoted to coffee.
