About this product
- DescriptionMarie-Louis-Adolphe Thiers (1797-1877) was a prominent figure in a turbulent period in French history. Described by Karl Marx as a 'monstrous gme' and condemned by the left for suppressing the Paris Commune of 1871, he enjoyed a controversial political career, but it is for his epic Histoire de la Revolution Francaise that he is chiefly remembered today. It was first published in French in ten volumes between 1823 and 1827, and in 1838 Frederic Shoberl's English translation made it a staple of British bookshelves. Consolidated into five volumes and illustrated with an array of engravings, this edition presents readers with a history of events spanning more than a decade of revolution and war, and remains one of the most comprehensive accounts of the French Revolution. Volume 3 opens by analysing the state of France in May 1793, and concludes with an account of Robespierre and his downfall in 1794.
