About this Item

Eleven exquisite, highly detailed watercolors of battle scenes, landscapes, waterfronts, etc. 12mo. 16 by 10 cm. 48 leaves, writing on virtually all rectos and versos. Specifically, the watercolors include a portrait of Napoleon, a bucolic landscape with a seraph, a sheperdess in a bucolic setting, a ship in a coastal seascape, a panorama of a botanical garden at Avranche, a hilly panorama, a view of St. St.-Michel, the battles of Waterloo, Montreau and Arcole, a bouquet of flowers. In addition, there are decorative devices, most notably on the title page, and every page is framed by an unique ornamental band. The poetry, all presumably by Caillon, is written in a neat, cursive calligraphic hand. A common thread running through the writing is Normandy and the war, and Caillon pays homage to the former Emperor. Mainly, though, this is a manuscript of extraordinary phyiscal beauty.

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.
