Notes

La Chronique du Mois (Feb 1792, p.112) announces the translation and explains its goal of spreading French ideas on liberty among its neighbours who are still enslaved. It was reviewed favourably in The Paris Mercury; and Continental Chronicle (June 1792). This paper, which was owned by Robert Taylor, was printed by Thomas Gillet & Co for Gueffier (Paris) and James Ridgway, John Owen, Thomas Axtell, Robert Hall Westley (London). Gwyn A Williams notes that the S.C.I. subsidised this translation, 'Artisans and Sans-Culottes: Popular Movements in France and Britain during the French Revolution' (1968), p.68. See David Erdman, 'Commerce des Lumières', pp.125-29.
