I have just acquiired on EBAY (through my cousin who put sold them there and who himself acquired them through an inheritance) two very interesting volumes on the trial of Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette and Madame Elizabeth.

Wrtten in 1797 and published in 1814!! In other words written just a few years after the events.

In these volumes is a full list of those deputies who voted at the trial on the death of the King and the department they came from, carefully and clearly laid out, with their exact reply...acquittal, death or deportation and possibility for reprieve or not.

In the volume of the trial of marie Antoinette, there is a full transcript of the exact questions and her exact replies in the courtroom!!

I simply cannot wait to read them!
