about

James Mackintosh's Vindiciæ Gallicæ (1791) was a brilliant reply to Edmund Burke's Reflections on the Revolution in France and Charles-Alexandre de Calonne's De l'état de la France. Whig Opposition leader Charles James Fox rated it as the finest defence of the French Revolution. This edition offers an extensive editor's introduction, a fully annotated text of the first edition of Vindiciæ Gallicæ and an appendix that includes the significant substantive revisions that Mackintosh made to Vindiciæ Gallicæ in the late summer of 1791.
EDMUND GARRATT was educated at the University of Sussex and at Darwin College, University of Cambridge. His research interests lie in Eighteenth-century Literature and History. He has published essays on James Mackintosh, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Charles Lamb. He currently lives and works in Cambridgeshire.
