Chez le citoyen F. Hayez, imprimeur, rue des escaliers
This leaflet is one of the various revolutionary pamphlets housed at the Graduate Institute Library. The French Revolution (1789-1799) was a prolific period for political publications. The pamphlets were popular, short controversial texts commenting the political events of that time. They were often published in haste and were sold unbound. With the press of that period, the pamphlets played a major role in the dissemination of political ideas.
This anti-Robespierre text deals with the Thermidorian Reaction, in the night of the 9th to 10th of Thermidor (27-28th July 1794), which marked the end of the Reign of Terror and saw the arrest of Robespierre. Robespierre was executed a few months later, in July 1794.
