- Full Description
Introduction by William B. Jones. Released as a plus-sized World Around Us issue from Classics Illustrated. "Exceptionally well researched and well-organized." And with a plethora of wonderful artists each doing small segments which explain the complete tale of economics, aristocracy, revolution and ultimately, the rise of Napoleon.
"It explains the three Estates of pre-Revolutionary France, discusses the economic crisis that lead to the falling of the Estates-general, offers visually gripping accounts of the critical episodes from the fall of Bastille onward. Also insightful biographical sketches of leaders Danton, Robespierre, Marat, Saint-Just, and Hebert. Editor Roberta Strauss Fuerlicht and her assistant editor Helene Lecarnot only supplied an admirably illuminating text, but they gathered an outstanding group of artists who did [it] justice... [The] artists bring considerable sympathy and a human dimension to the doomed monarchs whose final days they detailed." "Other artists excelled as well, making The French Revolution a Gilberton triumph--and a welcome restoration in this handsome Jack Lake edition." --William B. Jones (author of Classics Illustrated, from his much-longer introduction and history. Also contains artwork by Ann Brewster, Graham Ingels, and Norman Nodel. Spiral-bound.
