THE MONARCHY

OF

THE MIDDLE CLASSES.

FRANCE,

SOCIAL, LITERARY, POLITICAL,

SECOND SERIES.

BY HENRY LYTTON BULWER, Esq. M.P.

Nature and truth are the same every where, and reason shows them every
where alike. But the accidents and other causes, which give rise and
growth to opinions both in speculation and practice, are of infinite variety.

Bolingbroke or the true Use of Retirement and Study.
Reverere conditores Deos, numina Deorum. Reverere gloriam veterem,
et hanc ipsam senectutem quæ in homine venerabilis, in urbibus sacra est.
Sit apud te honor antiquitati, sit ingentibus facti, sit fabulis quoque, nihil ex
cujusquam dignitate, nihil ex libertate, nihil etiam ex jactatione decerpseris.

Plinius Maximo Suo S.

ADVERTISEMENT.

These two volumes were, for the most part, written and in the hands of the publisher some months since; and it was only the desire to be perfectly accurate in certain details, to ascertain which a visit to Paris was necessary, that delayed their appearance. These form the necessary continuation to the two volumes published a year ago and called, “ France Literary, Social and Political. The new title now added is given in córrsequence of the author having considered its fožuiter omission an error—which it was more essential to rectify in that part of the work which jelated to recent institutions, than it could have been in the preceding part which rather treated of the effects of national character and former history.

The objection of proceeding speedily through the Press, after the unavoidable delay that has been alluded to, has occasioned some few typographical errors which the reader is requested to have the kindness to excuse. Some slight alterations, since certain passages were printed, have taken place. The suppression of the Tribune,' is one of these.

N.B.-A translation of all French words or sentences not translated in foot notes, is to be found at the end of the volume that contains them.
