Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. DJ slightly ruffled at the edges. Previous owners inscription to the first blank.

Illustrated with line drawings. From the cover: “After a century and a half the French Revolution retains its extraordinary capacity to excite horror and pity, loathing and admiration. In The Way of the Tumbrils a dozen of its most turbulent and tragic episodes are dramatically retold in an entirely new way. The very streets, houses, prisons, and churches which once echoed with the roaring of the crowds, the shouts of the victims, and the thudding of the guillotine come alive again against the background of those same streets and houses in Paris as they are today.”
