DETAILS

A fascinating uniformly bound set, exploring the history of the French Revolution, the first Empire, and the Consulat.

Written in French.

Illustrated throughout all volumes including engraved plates by Yan Dargent, and by Yon Perrichon.

Marie Joseph Louis Adolphe Thiers was a French politician and historian. He was a leading historian of the French Revolution, with arguments that the republicanism of the Revolution was the central theme of modern French history. Thiers served as prime minister IN 1836, 1840 and 1848, and he was a vocal opponent of Emperor Napoleon III. Following the overthrow of the Second Empire Thiers again came to power and suppressed the revolutionary Paris Commune of 1871.

Chapters include "Assemblee Constituante", "Premiere Federation", "Valmy", "Convention Nationale", "Treize Vendemiaire", and "Conferences de Lille", "Somo-Sierra", "Wagram", "Ulm et Trafalgar", "Congres de Vienne" and "Le Champ de Mai", "Constitution de L'an VIII", "Administration Interieure", "Marengo", "Heliopolis", and "Armistice".

The First French Empire, also known as the Greater French Empire or Napoleonic Empire, was the empire of Napoleon I of France. It was the dominant power of much of continental Europe during the early 19th century. Chapters include A fascinating illustrated edition exploring the history of the French Consulate.

Histoire La Revolution is complete in two volumes, Histoire de l'Empire is complete in four volumes, and Histoire de Consulat is complete in its self. Making a complete set of Marie Adolphe Thiers historical works.

What Our Customers Say...

My request to Rooke Books was met with professionalism far beyond anything I could have ever expected and the volumes sent to me for my consideration were perfect in every respect.  I eventually landed on a book which was shipped immediately, arrived in perfect condition and allowed me to present a unique and very special gift to my daughter on her 18th birthday.  She was stunned when she opened the present and saw the book.

John, USA
