Added: a very detailed Biography of Jean-Paul Marat by E. B. Bax. This has been made possible by Mr. Crawford whom I would like to thank here. Mr. Crawford has scanned and corrected the whole book, which represents a probably the work of several weeks (I've done that myself several times).
If there's something I've learned by making and maintaning this site, the it's the reliability paradigm. Internet publishing means that there is only one thing which is reliable: the absence of reliability. I have lost my site twice because the provider suddenly stopped webhosting. Then I made copys of the whole site at different locations: if you can't find the pages here, there is at least a copy elsewhere (mirroring).

Before setting up this form I had to find the means to protect you of "harvesters". Harvesters are programs looking around in the web in quest of e-mail addresses. Once they find new addresses the victims get unsollicitated advertising e-mails. Though there is no guarantee that the procedure works 100 %, I did my best. Of course I won't tell how. And of course, on this page you won't find any ads either.
