An Ordinary Guillotine

Dublin Core

Title

An Ordinary Guillotine

Description

The guillotine was first introduced as a humane, efficient, and above all modern form of execution in April 1792; during the radical phase of the Republic, it would become the symbol of the Terror. This engraving suggests the guillotine is providing "good support for liberty."
