Palm, Johann Philipp (17681806)

Palm, Johann Philipp, a Nürnberg bookseller, tried by court-martial at the instance of Napoleon, and shot, for the publication of a pamphlet reflecting on Napoleon and his troops, an act, from the injustice of it, that aroused the indignation of the whole German people against him; “better,” thinks Carlyle, “had he lost his best park of artillery, or his best regiment drowned in the sea, than shot that poor German bookseller” (17681806).
