Page dimensions: 183 x 120mm. Chapters on Maximilien Robespierre; Robert Burns; Benjamin Robert Haydon; Heinrich Heine; Edgar Allan Poe; and Thaddeus Kosciusko. The chapter on Poe is very unflattering - "As it was, he did but little - a few poems, a few prose sketches - and is remembered almost as much for the mournfulness of his career as for the quality of his contributions to American literature" - page 298.
