Royalist gravure August 1792

BNF Gallia has an app for iPads! I'm probably the last person to discover it but I found this contemporary cartoon scurrilously depicting all the boys in the band, Prudhomme, Barnave, lots of others, and there, clutching his lantern and wearing his Phrygian cap is Camille! But he's labelled as Janot Desmoulins, I never heard that before.

Ha - I don't think I've seen that before! How interesting! I'll have to zoom in and scrutinize it a bit.

You can get much clearer copies on line ~ I just couldn't find one to post. The print is glorified in Fleury (no surprise there) but I thought it was interesting to see all the journalists ~ Prudhomme is sticking out of the cart lol
