London, W. & C. Spilsbury, 1796. [1],71pp. Dbd. Foxing in first few leaves, else near fine. Item #WRCAM38642

A French-language response, "en forme de supplément," to William Eden, Baron Auckland's 1795 pamphlet, SOME REMARKS ON THE APPARENT CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE WAR.... OCLC attributes the work to Eden; whether or not this is accurate, REFLEXIONS..., is presented as a sympathetic Frenchman's response to Eden's pamphlet, written because "there are certain delicate points on which an Englishman cannot publicly have an opinion contrary to the received and hallowed prejudices in his country" (p.3, trans.). Like SOME REMARKS..., the present work discusses monarchy and the French Revolution at length, as well as the ongoing revolt in the Vendée. OCLC locates five copies, including two in Great Britain, one in Germany, and two in the U.S., at the Newberry Library and the Library of Congress. Scarce. GOLDSMITHS 16880. DNB VI, pp.363-64.
