France. Assemblée Nationale Constituante, 1789-1791. Extrait des procès- verbaux de l'Assemblée Nationale, des 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 26 Août et Premier Octobre 1789 : Déclaration des Droits de L'Homme en Société. [Paris : s.n., 1789]

Many drafts of declarations of the rights of man were submitted to the assembly, but that of Emanuel Joseph Comte Sieyes, with assistance from Jean Joseph Mounier and the Vicomte de Mirabeau, was adopted. Mounier, 1758-1806, president of the Assembly, submitted the document to King Louis XVI who accepted it on October 5, 1789, during rioting in Paris. The declaration was modeled on the constitutions of some American states, particularly Virginia and New Hampshire, and was influenced by the writings of Locke, Rousseau, and Voltaire.
