Riqueti, Count of Mirabeau was an 18th-century French Revolution leader known for his involvement in political controversies and scandals. One of his most notable cases came following his mission to the royal court in Prussia. He published a book entitled ‘The Secret History of the Court of Berlin’ in which he described the Prussian royalty, including King Frederick the Great, as a weak and incompetent. The French government was appalled at the contents of Mirabeau’s treatise and censored the contents before it was mass produced. 

 

Not all of the contents, however, were controversial in nature. This eight volume French set covers economic policies, descriptions of Prussian and German people, and the political situation of Germanic states such as Bavaria and Saxony.

 

This book inspired many of the French Revolution ideas, especially those which opposed the French government. Like many controversial French Revolution-era books, this book was published in Paris with ‘Londres’ (or London) on the title page.
