Eight essays from the Quarterly Review, reprinted with additions and corrections, by the celebrated Tory diarist. They form a picture of the Revolution through the fall of Robespierre, from Croker's viewpoint - that of a man too conservative to be willing to sit in a reformed Parliament. There is an overview of events through the fall of the Bastille - originally a review and denunciation of Thiers' histories; a description of Louis and Marie Antoinette; a study of the escape to Varennes; the fall of the monarchy in the summer of 1792; the captivity of the royal family; Robespierre; the Revolutionary Tribunal; and the Guillotine.
