x, 422, x pp. 12mo. Full leather, gilt titles & decorations. Frontispiece, woodcut illustrations in text. A history of late 18th and early 19th century France focusing on the military and political career of Napoleon Bonaparte, who became Emperor Napoleon I following the French Revolution. He was a skilled military commander whose tactics are still studied, and the Napoleonic Code he created is used by the governments of numerous countries. This volume, originally published in 1834, was reprinted the year Napoleon's remains were returned to Paris, an event named 'retour des cendres' ('return of the ashes'). This was attended by millions, and recorded in Victor Hugo's poetry collection Les Rayons et les Ombres (Beams and Shadows), which was printed the same year.
