(Paris, 1794). 85, (1) pp. 12mo. 19th-century half vellum, corners. Martin & Walter 1653. First edition. The report reaffirmed the principles of the Ventôse decrees: the ownership of land would 'attach all citizens to property and the fatherland'. See at length: Gershoy, Bertrand Barère, A Reluctant Terrorist, pp. 228 ff.'Bertrand Barère de Vieuzac, held legal office at Tarbes, prosperous, eloquent, ingratiating manners and literary taste, he was elected to the Constituent Assembly in 1789, moved steadily to the left, gained influence in the Convention as a local orator. Member of the Committee of Public Safety. He was arrested after the riots of 12 Germinal (1 April 1795) when the new majority in the Convention decided to dispose of the alledged suporters of the riot: Collot d'Herbois, Billaud-Varenne and Barère. Barère survived and died a poor pensioner of Louis-Philippe. When David, in 1832, went to see the aged Barère, to discuss the plan of portraying the great men of the Revolution, the old revolutionary sat up and declared: 'Do not forget Robespierre!' He was a man of pure integrity, a true republican.' (Cobban, A., A History of Modern France, vol. I). In 1789 he brought out the first issue of his 'Point du Jour', one of the best and most nearly impartial of the newspapers of the day; it continued to appear until the end of the Constituent Assembly. Barère was a man of great charm, and he quickly made a place for himself in Parisian society. He was one of the circle surrounding the duke of Orléans. He joined, but rarely attended, the Jacobins, the more conservative 'Society de 1789', and the Abbé Fauchet's masonic 'Société des Amis de la Vérité'. He supported Robespierre's proposal that free Negro proprietors become citizens, as well as political rights for Jews and Protestants. It was due largely to Barère's efforts and those of Danton that the Committee of Public Safety was created, and he was the first to be elected to it. He later served the committee above all as its principal rapporteur. After a long discussion late at night, Barère could summarize a question rapidly and luminously, posing it so clearly that it could be easily resolved. N° de ref. de la librería
