46pp., 12mo. In original printed wraps, with the last two pages of the catalogue on the back cover. 704 priced items, with descriptions. Reproduction of no. 612 (mezzotint of Napoleon by Charles Turner from J. J. Masquerier) on front cover. In fair condition, on aged paper, in aged and worn wraps, with occasional pencil markings in margins. An important catalogue, issued in part to make a point during the Great War. The most valuable item by far, covering nearly half a page, is 223, a copy of Wheeler and Broadley's 'Napoleon and the Invasion of England', 'extra-illustrated and extended to 4 volumes', at £130. The final four sections are 'The map of Europe in the time of Napoleon' (pp.35-37); 'Engravings' (pp.37-42); 'Napoleonic Caricatures' (pp.42-44) and 'Autograph Letters and Manuscripts' (pp.44-46). No. 749, priced at £50, is Gen. Gaspard Gourgaud's 'Manuscripts respecting Napoleon I., in his autograph'; its twenty-line description begins with 'The Original Manuscript of a Portion of Napoleon's Own Memoirs dictated to Gen. Gourgaud at St. Helena, 11pp. folio.' Also present is a letter by Napoleon's mother, priced at £14, and transcribed in full. Scarce: no copy in the British Library and the only copy on COPAC at the National Library of Wales. N° de ref. de la librería 12586
