London: Henry Colburn, 1826. 8vo, “vi” (i.e. xvi), 248pp With a large folding map at the front. Half green hardgrain morocco, marbled boards, gilt-lettered backstrip, gilt top, bookplate of Henry P. Marsham and his arms stamped on the backstrip. Occasional foxing, binding slightly rubbed, a very good copy with an interesting addendum. Contained in a quarter red morocco box lined with moiré silk. First edition, a lovely copy of a scarce book with an interesting Napoleonic association item added. In the box there is an antique letter opener with the figure of Napoleon on top and a tiny glass tube which when peered into reveals 4 miniature scenes relating to Napoleon's life -- it was apparently sold in a furniture and household goods auction at Butterfields in the 1990s and has a ticket indicating it brought $2000. Bonham's which owns Butterfields doesn't have a record of that sale. (Item Id: 106739)
