About This Item

(Printed by T.K. and P.G. Collins for) Lea and Blanchard, Philadelphia: ., 1848 pp. viii, (1), (15)-374, (30) [Publisher's illustrated catalogue]. Foxed. Manuscript ownership of Thomas? L. Speyers?, 1873. 1924 penciled comment that mentions American Civil War. 12mo. 200 mm. Original full cloth binding. Major loss at head of spine. Hardbound. Good. Honore-Gabriel de Riqueti, comte de Mirabeau (1749-1791) was a leader of the early stages of the French Revolution. A noble, he was involved in numerous scandals that had left his reputation in ruins, before the start of the Revolution (1789). Nonetheless, he rose to the top of the French political hierarchy. He acquired the reputation as the 'voice of the people.' The later discovery that he was in the pay of King Louis XVI and the Austrian enemies of France beginning in 1790 caused his posthumous disgrace. Historians are deeply split on whether he was a great leader who almost saved the nation from the Terror, a venal demagogue lacking political or moral values, or a traitor in the pay of the enemy. PAIMP 25. Hardcover.
