The memoirs of Joseph Fouché, duke of Otranto, minister of the General police of France (1825)

"When first published [1824] the Memoirs were accepted as Fouché's own work, but owing to a suit instituted by his family they were later admitted to be that of Alphonse de Beauchamp ... But ... the work is undoubtedly based on Fouché's own notes and papers." -- Introduction to Memoirs relating to Fouché' ... Tr. from the French by E. Jules Méras. New York, 1912
