NOTES

A scarce American printing of key documents of the French Revolution, compiled by Dutch feminist pamphleteer Maria Aletta Hulshoff. This publication includes the first American printing of the 1793 French Constitution. Hulshoff went into voluntary exile in New York in 1811 after facing political persecution for her pacifist views, and remained in the United States until 1820.
