"This book was written twenty-six years ago, at Brussels, during the first months of exile. It was begun on the fourteenth of December 1851, the day after the author reached Belgium, and it was completed on the fifth of May 1852, as if chance would commemorate the anniversary of the death of the first Bonaparte with the condemnation of the second. Chance also, by an accumulation of labour, care and sorrow, has delayed the publication of this history till the present eventful year of 1877. Had chance also something to do with the coincidence that brings the affairs of the past and the affairs of today in juxtaposition?". Bookseller Inventory # mon0001341781
