Thomas Christie was a Scottish radical political writer during the late 18th century. He, along with J. Johnson, were the original two founders of the important liberal journal, the Analytical Review, which became the mouthpiece for reformers during the 1790s. [Wiki]

Regarding this particular work, it described Christie's impressions of Paris and provided a contrast to Burke's depiction of it as lawless and violent. Part II was never published.
