Two works parodying excessive scepticism, the first, originally published as a pamphlet by Whately in 1819, follows Hume's scepticism regarding religious testimony of miracles to conclude that Napoleon never existed. See Sabin 32048 for the first American edition of Whately's work; and 32046 for Fitzgerald's.
