Post 8vo, cloth. 10s. Gd.

"Leone (fives, with exact details, the narrative of his own life at the periods which have reference to the events of which he speaks. It is incontestable that he entered the Monastery of Chieri with an extremely ardent, fixed, and profound determination; that he desired nothing so much as to become a Jesuit, and that all at once, without any ascertained motive, he was seen, to the great amazement of everybody, flying from that monastery into which he had so eagerly desired admittance two months before, and where he had met with nothing but kindness, favour, and all sorts of winning treatment. It is certain, then, that he received some terrible shock in the monastery. The facts relating to all the circumstances which form in the narrative the envelope, as it were, to the Secret Coherence, are of public notoriety in Leone's native land, and he narrates them publicly, mentioning names, places, dates, facts, and persons, and for my part I doubt not that the publication now made by Leone is the true and sincere explanation of that mysterious point."—Editor's Preface.

"There has hitherto been no biography of Rohespierre. Notices in Biographical Dictionaries and in Histories of the French Revolution, are the only records of a career which has left so deep an impression upon men's minds. It seemed, therefore, desirable, on many accounts, that the materials for a more complete understanding of this remarkable man. scattered through numerous and not easily accessible volumes, should be brought together, and so selected as to present a view of the separate phases of the character of this extraordinary man, and thus furnishing tht* data upon which a judgment of him may be formed. Everything known about him is here collected; all his opinions are stated, and the pith and substance of almost all his published speeches translated."—Prefact,
