What Our Customers Say...

Description

Early Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, Uncommon

The third edition.

Collated, complete.

A classic piece of historical writing which was first published in 1837. It charts the course of the French revolution from 1789 to the height of the Reign of Terror and culminates in 1795. It covers a broad period of history with great success, and was regarded as an authoritative account on the the early course of the revolution. 

It has been written in an unusual tone compared to other contemporary historical authors. Carlyle writes in the present-tense first-person plural as though he and the reader are observing the fall of the Bastille or the execution of Louis XVI. A truly engaging tone of writing.

Condition

In the publisher's original cloth binding. Externally, very smart. Minor fading to the spines which has a small amount of shelfwear to the head and tail. Front hinge to volume III is tender. Internally, all volumes are firmly bound. Pages are bright with just the occasional light spots to pages.

Very Good
