Richard Cobb is one of the most active and influential English historians of France. During a long career of research and writing, his interest has ranged from the Revolution to Vichy. He is especially renowned for his seminal work on the popular movement and on popular attitudes and preoccupations during the Revolution, as well as on its provincial history. This collection of essays is written by his friends, and is dedicated to him. The essays reflect some of the issues that have preoccupied Richard Cobb. Focused on some less familiar corners of the history of the Directory and the Consulate, it is concerned with regional and social rather than metropolitan and political history

Down Poona Road, past the Grove Bowling Club, the young Richard Cobb conducts his reader through the streets of Turnbridge Wells in the Twenties and Thirties, taking us into cluttered drawing rooms and dining rooms set for tea. His is a chronicle of a south-eastern community; of the middle classes, their servants and an army of shopkeepers; of largely harmless snobbery, pretension and genteel scandal. In precise and generally loving detail, Cobb presents a world in miniature - a place of wonder and discovery
