14 Jellinek, Frank The Paris Commune of 1871
The Universal Library, Grosset & Dunlap, New York 1965 2nd Edition Soft cover Very Good No Jacket 
First Published by Victor Gollanez Ltd., London England in 1937, This Edition is "printed complete on permanent book paper from the readable type of the first edition." "Though it has been called the first modern revolution and reverberations have made themselves felt down to our own time, the Paris Commune of 1871 is a curiously half-forgotten event.in the course of its brief ten-week history, half of Paris was burned down; and nearly twice as many people were killed in one week as died throughout France during the three years of the French revolution's terror. Frank Jellinek's spirited and detailed study- regarded as the most authoritative account availavble in English- revives the facts of this bloody episode and reestablishes it in its proper context as a crucial moment in European history." 451 pages, withdrawn from the library, with stamps and pockets inside. Book is in very good condition, looks as though it had never been read. Some shelf wear and library stickers on the cover. 451 pages.
