by S Herbert

The book begins with details and examples of the survivals of feudalism at the time of the French Revolution (1789), such as peasant farmers being forbidden to plant their crops until late June, so that the eggs of the game birds in the fields would be safe and thus provide more game for the nobility to hunt. Or "each young man who marries during the year must pay (to the seigneur) 12 sols for his wife, who is herself obliged to dance for the amusement of the seigneur or his agents." The rest of the book deals with the uprising and the Revolution, with its violent and sweeping rejection of the last elements of feudalism in France.
