The Cradle of Rebellion: A History of the Secret Societies of France
New York: John Bradburn. Hardcover. 479 pages. Translated from the French. "The object in translating this work, the production of a sparkling and witty French writer, De La Hodde, is to show the dangerous consequences, to society and government, arising from the practices of secret associations. It gives a perfect illustration of the operations of these associations in bringing about the present unprincipled rebellion in the United States. French characters, similar to the leading conspirators against our own government, are set forth in a way that gives the reader a clear insight into the science of demagogism, and lays open that nefarious class of political transactions which must tend to the ruin of any country whatever, and especially to one which is governed by republican institutions. New light is shed upon the darkling work of secret societies; their demoralizing consequences to society are exposed, and their deeds of subterraneous deceit and treachery brought to the contempt and detestation of all good, true, and loyal men." - from Preface. A heavily worn former library copy with the usual markings. Those with an interest in more recent conspiracies may be interested to know that this copy previously belonged to the University of Chicago Library. . Fair. 1864. Reprint.
