Title: Justification des griefs imputés au Roi et a la famille Royale; renfermant le développement des principes d'un gouvernement représentatif, et de l'esprit d'une charte constitutionelle, 1815. 1st Edition
Author: Jean-Baptiste-Marc Des Rioux de Messimy
Publisher: Guyot et Pellafol, Paris
A first edition of Messimy’s publication of various grievances and criticisms aimed at King Louis XVII and the Royal House of Bourbon, likely published in the wake of Napoleon’s defeat and exile and the House of Bourbon’s return to power, with a revolutionary edge to its words. This volume also goes into length for the development of the principles of a representative government, and of the spirit of a constitutional charter, yearning to break free from the grip of the monarchy.
One volume in octavo, 191 pages
