[NAPOLEON]. A list of books bearing on the epoch of Napoleon.

[s.i.]. [s.n.], [s.d.]
Quarto. Manuscript on paper. [134] leaves. Contemporary half- morocco, marbled paper boards, paper label with title in manuscript to upper board, marbled edges. Extremities rubbed and marked, spine worn with loss to head and foot. Marbled endpapers, very occasional light spotting.
An apparently late Victorian manuscript bibliography, in a single frustratingly unidentified hand, of predominantly historical and martial French language works concerning the Napoleonic Wars and the state of France at the turn of the nineteenth century, published both contemporaneously and later.

Intriguingly, many of the entries have been struck-through or checked off, perhaps suggesting either the successful purchase or, conversely, sale of a volume.
