Life of Theobald Wolfe Tone



EUR 21.99

Since publication in 1826, Theobald Wolfe Tone's two-volume autobiography, edited by his son William T.W. Tone, has been regarded by historians as an indispensable source for the history of the 1790s in both Ireland and France. Although there have been a number of abridged versions of the "Life", the full text has never been republished. This unabridged editon of Theobald Wolfe Tone's autobiography includes the text of the 1826 edition and restores excisions that the Tone family, for reasons of primness and prudence, made to the original manuscript. Besides the autobiography and diaries, the "Life" includes Tone's political writings and letters, and William Tone's account of his father's trial, among other elements.
