Le Père Duchêne: dix sous (Paris : Père Duchêne, [1870]) [Heisler] P4145


Le Père Duchesne was a newspaper printed during the French Revolution, and the title was borrowed by Le Père Duchêne during the Paris Commune, the radical socialist government of Paris that lasted for three months in 1871. Printed daily from 7 March to 22 May 1871, each issue was roughly eight pages long and contained encouraging passages, references to historical events and reminders to readers that it did not give bad advice. The pamphlet started just before the Paris Commune took power and ended just before the Commune itself.
