Local Note:
First edition: 18.2 x 12.8 cm. The printer's imprint is absent. The volume is bound in brown cloth over boards, with an embossed design within a single-ruled border blindstamped on both covers. The spine has the series, half-title, publisher, and place in a design incorporating a bald eagle, a draped stack of books, and a laurel leaf, all stamped in gilt. The flyleaves are of the same white paper as the text pages; the front flyleaf bears the handwritten note, "This book was bought by my Grandfather David Keller sometime before 1860 and has been in our family since then. It is with great pleasure that I gave it to my friend Edward Ellis. David H. Keller, July 1 - [19]48." The frontispiece, an engraving in black ink of a scene from Napoleon's life, faces the half-title page, which is an engraved portrait of Bonaparte in full color, and which includes the publisher and place. The title page contains the series, title, publisher, and place of publication; its verso is blank. The text includes eight unpaginated leaves of plates, which have become discolored from contact with the ink of the adjoining text pages.
