London Souvenir Press 1964 First UK Edition Hardcover VG GOOD 
224pp+illus. Dj has wear at extremes,repaired on the inside, price clipped, book itself VG and a nice clean copy. The man who gave his name to the guillotine, was in fact a highly talented humanitarian who only narrowly escaped execution himself. His sole motive for suggesting the use of the device, which he did not invent, was to prevent further suffering to the victims of the revolution. The author sets his story in its true perspective, revealing the part Guillotin played in the establishment of freemasonry in France, his astonishing duel with Mesmer and exposure of the charlatan; his growing interest in politics and the part he played at the beginning of the French Revolution. Well illustrated with Bibliography.
