This comprehensive biography of Napoleon, based in large part on the works of the French historian Louis Adolphe Thiers, includes extensive coverage of his military campaigns and diplomacy. A short epilogue (II, 490-9) recounts Napoleon's exhumation and reinternment in Paris in 1840.Lopes de Moura (1780-1860), an Afro-Brazilian author, native of Bahia, became involved in the Inconfidencia Bahiana of 1798 and later fought in the Peninsular War before establishing a medical practice in Paris. There he found that he could not live on his income as a physician, and so applied himself to writing and translating: he was responsible for the translation into Portuguese of several French medical books, as well as works of Sir Walter Scott and James Fenimore Cooper. His translations had such great influence in Brazil that D. Pedro II, hearing of his financial difficulties, awarded him a pension from his private purse.*** Innocêncio II, 12: calling for 12 plates and a portrait. Sacramento Blake II, 10: without collation.
