MEMOIRS OF MADAME ViGEE LEBRUN. Translated
by LIONEL STRACHEY. With numerous repro-
ductions of paintings by the Authoress. 8vo.
Pages xvi + 233. Illustrations 32, full page.
Appendix and Index. New York: Doubleday,
Page & Co. 1903.
The translator of this series of books is placing
before the American public a delightful collection
of human letters of periods when " society" was
of a more intellectual fibre than to-day. The pre-
vious volumes were " Memoirs of the Countess
Potocka" and the "Memoirs of a Contemporary."
The present book is a translation from the French.
Madame Lebrun brought out her Memoirs at the
suggestion of her friend, the Princess Dolgoruki, in
1833. The authoress was born in Paris, 1756, and
died there in 1842. Her varied life brought her
in contact with many of the central figures taking
part in the history-making of that eventful epoch;
and her records are those of a mind freed from
prejudice or pedantry, quick to comprehend, and
able to convey its comprehension with vigor and
clearness. All who enjoy reading the familiar annals
of a past day will find this book one of the most
enjoyable of its kind. The publishers have em-
bellished the delightful text with illustrations worthy
of it, both from an artistic and a historic stand-
