' On these sheets are traced events that will never
be forgotten, poi traits thit will decide the judgment of
posterity. It is the book of life or death to many whose
names are recorded in it.' — Opinion of Las Cases in
his Journal.

' This work bears impressed on it the stamp of the
gigantic mind from which it emanated : nothing
escapes the observation, or transceuds the capacity
of the Impeiial Annalist. He combines the judg-
ment and penetration of Tacitus with the prodigious
versatility of Cfesar, and the more enlarged views
of modern philosophy and science; policy, religion,
war, civil administration, statistics, art, even litera-
ture — in short, whatever he touches on — seems to un-
fold its most recondite principles to his view, and to
be fully comprehended and appreciated. To the future
historian the value of the " Historical Miscellanies" is
incalculable: with regard to the Memoirs themselves,
no history can ever supersede them.' — Edinburgh Ma-
gazine.
