About this Item

12mo. 124 by 70 mm. [42], 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. Full Straight-Grained Red Morocco. Bookseller Inventory # 004717

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
