Jean-Paul Marat was a French revolutionary, journalist, and scientist. He was the editor of a weekly journal entitled L’Ami du people which lasted from no. 1 (sept. 12, 1789)-no. 685 (sept. 21, 1792). "L’Ami du peuple comprises nearly 700 issues published in octavo between September 1789 and September 1792. Most issues were eight pages long, though some issues stretched to twelve or sixteen pages. Pagination of the earlier volumes was somewhat irregularly organized, while every issue after number 70 is individually paginated. The collection contains more than 1.5 million words and nearly 50,000 unique word forms. The newspaper is a notable example of French Revolutionary populism, and Marat frequently ran into trouble with the authorities in the earlier days of the newspaper’s publication for his criticism of those in power. Printing of the journal was suspended on numerous occasions, often due to the fact that Marat had gone into hiding. The newspaper was named Le publiciste parisien for its first five issues, but Marat changed the name to L’Ami du peuple in the sixth issue. This name remained with the newspaper until the end of its print run, when Marat was elected to the National Convention. Marat would go on to publish other newspapers, under different titles, until his death at the hands of Charlotte Corday on July 13, 1793."

We sent the files to ARTFL, which sent them out to be double keyed by one of their regular vendors, followed by the addition of minimal TEI markup (divisions, heads, some paragraphs, and page tags); quality assurance, image correction, etc. This is Stanford Library's copy of all files associated with this project.
