Availability: Ready to download

Excerpt from Memoirs of Monsieur Claude: Chief of Police Under the Second Empire These Memoirs have been condensed in the present edition. Many parts of them are long out of date; such, for instance, as the chapters on police regulations and the prisons of Paris; while the police reports and proces-verbaux are as dull reading as the daily records of the Old Bailey. But the Excerpt from Memoirs of Monsieur Claude: Chief of Police Under the Second Empire These Memoirs have been condensed in the present edition. Many parts of them are long out of date; such, for instance, as the chapters on police regulations and the prisons of Paris; while the police reports and proces-verbaux are as dull reading as the daily records of the Old Bailey. But the historical parts, the underside of well-known events and persons during the reign of Louis-Philippe and the Second Empire, are valuable, curious, and very interesting. The book was published in 1881, and the London Spectator, when reviewing it in the summer of that year, said that it was perfectly trustworthy, and that its statements had not been refuted. These Memoirs are in ten volumes. The present volume condenses five, bringing the story down to the end of the Empire. The remaining volumes relate to the siege of Paris and the Commune. M. Claude resigned his post in 1876.
