First edition of this vivid account of the first years of the French Revolution, written by an intimate of Rousseau and Diderot. Escherny (1733-1815), a wealthy Swiss nobleman and man of letters, was quite enthusiastic about the Revolution in its early days. Nevertheless, he was obliged to hurriedly leave France in 1792, and later wrote that he was mistaken about the country's social and political upheaval. Fine copy from the library of Prince Dietrichstein. ? N.B.G., Vol. 15, cols. 350-51.
