The classic history in the illustrated edition of 1893 - featuring 200 illustrations by Joseph M. Gleeson.

Considered one of the most important events in human history, the French Revolution was an influential period of political and social upheaval in France that radically altered the course of modern history, catalyzing the establishment of democracies and triggering the global decline of absolute monarchies. This pivotal time in world history is chronicled in landmark, three-volume narrative historical masterpiece that established the legacy and reputation of Scottish essayist and historian Thomas Carlyle.

In this thrilling and unparalleled work, Carlyle brings the past to life in a vivid and insightful manner. Published in 1837, The French Revolution is a massive undertaking that charts the course of the French Revolution from 1789 to the height of the Reign of Terror and culminates in 1796.

As a historical account, Carlyle’s style of writing in The French Revolution deviated significantly from standard styles in historiography. Carlyle wrote not only in the present tense, but also in the first-person plural with impressive use of personification and metaphors in a way that draws the reader into the time period, not as a mere observer, but as an active participant. Filled with extensive character studies and impressive set pieces, Carlyle’s work later inspired

Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities and is now accepted as the authoritative account on the subject of the French Revolution. Adding to the vivid accounts in The French Revolution are 200 dramatic images by acclaimed American painter and illustrator Joseph M. Gleeson, providing visual reference and immediacy to the accounts relayed.
