France: Empire and Republic, 1850-1940 : historical documents by David Thomson( Book )

28 editions published in 1968 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The theme of this volume is the historical development of France from the middle of the last century until her defeat by Germany in the summer of 1940. It spans, in political terms, two of the ten régimes France has known since the beginning of the nineteenth century: the Second Empire of Napoleon III and the Third Republic. But its theme is not limited to the constitutional or political aspects of French development in these years, nor even to the military, diplomatic, economic or social aspects. It comprises whatever significant events in any and all of these aspects of national life and activity most help to explain the over-all fortunes of France between 1850 and 1940." [Introduction]

The Babeuf plot; the making of a Republican legend by David Thomson( Book )

24 editions published between 1947 and 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"François-Noël Babeuf (23 November 1760 ? 27 May 1797), known as Gracchus Babeuf (in tribute to the Roman tribunes of the people and reformers, the Gracchi brothers, and used alongside his self-designation as Tribune), was a French political agitator and journalist of the French Revolutionary period. In spite of the efforts of his Jacobin friends to save him, Babeuf was arrested, tried, and convicted for his role in the Conspiracy of the Equals. Although the words "anarchist"and "communist" did not exist in Babeuf's lifetime, they have all been used to describe his ideas, by later scholars. The word "communism" was coined by Goodwyn Barmby in a conversation with those he described as the "disciples of Babeuf"."--Wikipedia

Renaissance Paris : architecture and growth, 1475-1600 by David Thomson( )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If Louis XI's inclination to make Tours the permanent capital of France in the 1470s had become a reality, the architectural history of Paris would be very different.[1] The gravitation of the Court, its personalities and developing institutions towards Paris, accounts for the building of the great majority of the noble town houses described in these pages. Few of the great or the wealthy who built houses in Paris during the sixteenth century were Parisian by origin or by adoption, and makes the declaration by François I of 1528 that Paris was to become his 'résidence habituelle' or base especially significant
