Dancing to the Precipice.
Lucie Dillon, known by her married name Lucie de la Tour du Pin, sat down to write her memoirs in 1820 when she was 50 years old. She produced one of the best chronicles of her age. Not printed until 50 years after her death, it has never been out of print since then. Moorehead has produced a rich biography of this amazing woman who wrote of the French Revolution, Regency London, Napoleon, and America's new democracy. VG but with an area of the jacket with tears.
