First edition. This book discusses the role of printing in the French revolution. The printing press helped shape the events it recorded and was an active force in history, expecially during the decade of 1789-1799, when the struggle for power was a struggle for mastery of public opinion. Illustrated. Name in ink at top of half-title.
