Happy Birthday, Frédéric!
Fortunately the Liberty Fund has put much of the Bastiat library online. Don't neglect this valuable resource.
If you'll forgive the self-promotion, I've written a biographical/bibliographical essay about Bastiat for the Liberty Fund. It is here.

The first book I read upon becoming aware of libertarian thought was Milton Friedman's Free to Choose. However, it was the second book The Law that really turned me hardcore, literally changing the way I think. Happy birthday Federic Bastiat and thank you for transforming me from part of the problem into hopefully part of the solution.

Bastiat is one of the most important classical liberals for those of us today. The clarity of his writing is an example to all of us.
I was wondering if there is any attempt to translate some of his other articles in Journal des Économistes? I recall some that have not been published since then, nor have been translated. There's one that stuck in my mind years ago (I apologize for not giving you the exact number, it's been ages since I reviewed the set at UCLA) about intellectual property which was quite good, and recall a number of others which were in Journal des Économistes.
Actually, it would be great to have the entire periodical translated.
Just a thought.
