Prospero's Bookshelf

A Boy of the First Empire, 1936 Elbridge S. Brooks

Regular price $2.50

Written by Elbridge S. Brooks (1846-1902) in 1895, A Boy of the First Empire  was edited in 1936 as a Student's Edition of a life of Napoleon by Edward Thorndike "to fit the interests and abilities of young readers."

This popular 1936 young person's book about Napoleon includes 18 charming drawings by H. A. Ogden.

With its strong and secure binding, this copy with library stickers shows age discoloration to the pages, and tears on the binding of the cover. With the exception of a name on the flyleaf, there are no tears or markings in the text, and the illustrations have retained their charm. The book, however, is in poor to fair condition as a vintage book.

The book measure 4 inches by 7 1/2 inches by 1 inch and has 292 pages.
