The Influence of Grenville on Pitt's Foreign Policy, 1787-1798

By Ephraim Douglass Adams | Go to book overview

BIBLIOGRAPHY.
The references cited in the body of the work are here arranged in alphabetical order under the subtitle used in the foot-notes. The principal source is the new collection of letters known as the "Dropmore Manuscripts." Whenever possible, all other references have been tested by it.In a study having for its main object the personal relations and influence of two men it was inevitable that the memoirs of contemporaries should be used largely. The caution with which such sources must be cited has been kept constantly in mind, and they have been cited only in cases where comparison with the Dropmore Manuscripts proves the credibility of the incidents stated, or where the citations serve to bring out the personal attitude or impression of the writers. The secondary authorities have been used merely either to authenticate well-established incidents essential to a logical statement of events or as supplementary proof.
AUCKLAND. The journal and correspondence of William, Lord Auckland. 4 vols. London: 1861-1862.

William Eden, afterward Lord Auckland, was on a diplomatic mission in Paris from 1785 to 1788 and represented England at The Hague from 1790 to 1793. His correspondence is therefore important for the formation of the Triple Alliance of 1788, for the Russian armament of 1791, and for the events leading up to and including the outbreak of war in 1793.

BAILLEU. Preussen und Frankreich von 1795 bis 1807. Diplomatische Correspondenzen, herausgegeben von Paul Bailleu. 2 vols. Leipzig: 1881- 1887.
BARRAS. Memoirs of Barras. Edited by George Duruy. 4 vols. New York: 1895- 1896.

The compilation of these memoirs, long after the events treated, renders them of doubtful service, and they have been used here only as supplementary evidence.

BOURGOING. Histoire diplomatique de l'Europe pendant la révolution française. Par François de Bourgoing. 4 vols. Paris: 1865- 1886.

Bourgoing is now considered an antiquated work, but well-authenticated data are sometimes found in it not elsewhere cited. His sources were limited as compared with those at the service of more recent historians.

BURGES. Selections from the letters and correspondence of Sir James Bland Burges. Edited by James Hutton. London: 1885.

Burges was Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs under both Leeds and Grenville. His letters are especially important for the change of English policy in 1791, which brought about the resignation of Leeds and the advancement of Grenville, but they have been so edited as to furnish a readable book rather than a valuable historical source, and extracts of correspondence must therefore be checked from other works.
