Paris: Chez Janet. Printer: L'Imprimerie de J. M. Eberhart, 1811. First Edition. Full Straight-Grained Red Morocco. Very Good. 12mo. 124 by 70 mm. , 232 pp. With four copper engravings. Detailed listings of all the officialdom and titled officeholders of the House of Napoleon, and these include those serving under the Empress. The almanac is a perfect reflection of Napoleon at the height of his imperial pretensions. With the restoration of the Church there is also listings of cardinals. The monthly calendars with saint days and the like appears in the front. Each of the plates has a comparatively elaborate explanation of what is depicted also in the preliminaries. Perhaps as important as the content is the beauty of the binding, with its gilt borders and ornamentation, including the crown and imperial cross devices on the spine. Also with pretty silk moire endpapers. Modest edgewear. Light scattered foxing, more abundant on the tissue guards. (Inventory #: 004717)
