Hard cover, issued without jacket. First Edition, first printing, limited to 1000 copies. A fascinating, comprehensive report of the campaigns of France's greatest general, from the first invasion of Italy, 1796 - 1797, to the expedition to Egypt, the battles of Marengo, Ulm, Austerlitz, Jena, and the war with Spain and with Austria, and many others, leading to the Hundred Days and Waterloo. The book is bound in green cloth with gilt, black and silver designs and gilt titles. There are several hundred black and white illustrations, several double-paged, and nineteen plates in full color, double-paged with tissue guards. There is normal wear to the boards with some edgewear to the spine ends but the front panel and spine lettering are bright and complete.
As much a collectible as history.
