Notes

In a letter included in the advertisement, D'Aumont (pseudonym?) claims to have written the narrative in English and to have relied on Cooper for corrections. The narrative is supplemented by a an appendix containing two translations: Condorcet's Reflections on the English revolution of 1688 and that of the French, August 10, 1792 and An exposition of the motives, which induced the National Assembly to proclaim the convocation of a National Convention, both translated by Cooper. Cooper was not prosecuted for the publication, since the octavo format made it too expensive for a popular public. Leech, Cosmopolitanism, p. 153. Negative review in The Critical Review, vol. VII (London, 1793), p. 56-60.
