1844 to 1846 History of Europe, French Revolution 1789 to Restoration of the Bourbons 1815

Sir Archibald Alison, 1st Baronet, FRSE 29 December 1792 to 23 May 1867 was a Scottish advocate attorney and historian. He held several prominent legal appointments.

He was the younger son of the Episcopalian cleric and author Archibald Alison. His elder brother was the physician and social reformer William Alison.

When travelling in France in 1814 he conceived the idea of his expansive History of Europe from the commencement of the French revolution to the restoration of the Bourbons.

This multi volume set is usually regarded as Alison's chief historical work and is the first scholarly English language study of the French Revolution.

Published between 1833 and 1843, History of Europe was revised and reprinted many times throughout the century, including numerous foreign language editions.

The work is one of vast industry, containing a wealth of information communicated in a vigorous though wordy style.
