Rare copy of this original edition of the Napoleonic epic told under the pen of Horace-Napoléon Raisson (1798-1854) in 10 volumes in a pretty binding of the time. The text printed on laid paper is illustrated with a portrait of the Emperor and 19 carefully engraved plates.
Provenance: from the library of Roger Magadoux attested by his ex-libris glued to the back of the dishes.
Good general condition but with small defects: rubbed bindings, blunt corners, constant foxing, other small minor defects.
Copies of this complete original edition of its 20 plates are not easily found.
