This paperback book is particularly important for its 250 engravings.
The book looks ragged, and it is. The front cover is missing and the frontispiece loose, as is the back cover. BUT the text is firmly stapled, and the illustrations are in fine condition.
The paperback measures 6 1/2 inches by 10 inches by 1/2 inch and has 248 pages. It contains a
(1) Table of the Bonaparte Family and a
(2) Chronology of the Life of Napoleon Bonaparte.
