"OF HIS SENSATIONAL RISE TO POWER, HIS BRILLIANT TRIUMPHS, AND HIS RAPID FALL"
(NAPOLEON) HUDSON, William Henry. The Man Napoleon. London: George G. Harrap, 1915. Octavo, modern three-quarter green morocco gilt, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. $650.
First edition, beautifully illustrated with sixteen color plates by Baron Myrbach.
Hudson's concern is "not with the statesman, not with the victor of Austerlitz nor with the dictator of Europe at Tilsit… it is upon the personality of the mighty protagonist himself that we shall try to focus our attention."
