The French Revolution of 1848 was one of many national revolutions that swept across Europe in 1848. The revolution in France in February 1848 caused the fall of King Louis Philippe who had reigned since 1830. He abdicated and retired to England. The Second Republic (1848-1852) followed. National workshops were set up in Paris to provide work for the unemployed. Elections were held in April based on universal manhood suffrage but, even so, one-half of the deputies elected were monarchists. In May, Louis Auguste Blanqui (1805-1881) led a failed coup. With little money to support them, the workshops closed causing a rising of the Parisian unemployed called the June Days. By December 1848 Louis Napoleon Bonaparte had been elected President.

The collection covers a wide range of topics including early annoucements about the outbreak of violence; efforts by workers' organizations to organize; official decrees of the provisional government; the April elections to the National Assembly; the insurgency in June; philosophical contributions by private citizens; Socialist and Communists tracts; satirical subjects; review of events and personalities such as General Cavaignac.
