About this Item

First edition of this English translation: Faux memoirs of Napoleon's exploits and those of his intimates, sometimes attributed to Armand-Augustin-Louis de Caulaincourt, Duke of Vicenza. Caulaincourt was a French general, diplomat, and close friend of Napoleon who accompanied the Emperor to Russia ? but he was not in fact responsible for this work, which was written by Charlotte de Sor, a.k.a. Comtesse d'Eilleaux (n?e D?sormeaux). De Sor depicts both Caulaincourt and Napoleon as romantic heroes. Binding: Publisher's ribbon-embossed green geometric-patterned cloth of Krupp's style Gt2; original printed paper labels. 12mo (19.2 cm, 7.5"). 2 vols. I: viii, [13]?253, [1 (blank)] pp. II: viii, [13]?230 pp. American Imprints 49627. On the binding, see: Krupp, Bookcloth in England & America, 1823?1850, p. 87. Bindings as above, cocked; edges, extremities, labels rubbed, chipped, spotted ? far from fresh, but also far from devastated. Ex?social club library: bookplate on each front pastedown, call numbers in a 19th-century hand (lined through) on pastedown and front free endpaper, title-pages and a few others rubber-stamped. No other institutional markings. Front hinge (inside) of vol. I starting, text block pulling away from spine, first few leaves starting to separate. Front fly-leaf with pencilled numeral and pencilled doodle/sketch of a chubby child; occasional faint pencilled annotations. A few scattered spots of staining, pages mostly clean.
