Description

"Printed at Rouen by Nicetas Periaux"; pp. xvii, [3], 152; steel engraved frontispiece portrait of Napoleon with tissue guard, and lithograph of "Rouen from the heights of St. Catherine" ( lithographed by Champin) with original tissue guard; half-title bound in immediately before first page of main text. Contemporary half black polished calf with marbled boards, very good and strong with a little rubbing and marking. Contents good and tight, endpapers somewhat dust soiled, with previous signature erased from front free end paper. Text with some localised finger soiling, a few pages more pronounced, severa pages with light marginal staining, lower blank corner to pp. 105/106 pinched off. Overall, a very good copy of this rare Napoleonic title. The introduction reads "The Following Poem was written on the heights of St-Catherine as the remains of Napoleon passed up the Seine, and the author endeavours to concentrate in a poetical form the feelings which that event naturally suggested."
