SAINT-JUST 1767 – 1794. 1993.


Little Sparta: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1993
17.1 x 10.4cm, 4pp card with a painting by Gary Hincks of a carnation that has been cut in two down the vertical. Below it are the words “Saint-Just 1767-1794 ”
On the back is the description of the young blade standing high in the cart as he went to his death. “He had a carnation in his button hole.”
The card is a memorial for Saint-Just who died on the guillotine as part of the Thermidorian reaction. It also perhaps recalls the quote from the “Angel of Death”: “One does not make revolutions by halves”. VG+.
