12 (Bonaparte, Napoleon). Commentaries by Jean-Pierre Babelon and Suzanne D'Huart. Translated from the French and introduced by Alex de Jonge. NAPOLEON'S LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT. A FACSIMILE EDITION OF THE ORIGINAL DOCUMENT, TOGETHER WITH ITS CODICILS, APPENDED INVENTORIES, LETTERS AND INSTRUCTIONS, PRESERVED IN THE FRENCH NATIONAL ARCHIVES.
Paddington, New York, 1977. 
106 pp, + 6 pages of b&w illustrations, 11" H, soft cover. ISBN 0448221861 " 'France, armee, tete d'armee, Josephine...' These were the strangely moving, strangely revealing last words spoken by Napoleon Bonaparte as he lay dying on the isle of S t. Helena in 1821. Ever since, they have contributed to the popular heroic image of the man who commanded the loyalty of millions, conquered almost the whole of Europe and lost the woman he loved. But his will, reprinted here in facsimile a n d t r a n slated into English for the first time, throws fascinating new light on one of the most enigmatic and extraordinary figures in history. From the detailed lists of his shirts and snuff boxes to the distribution of millions of francs, fr om h i s bi tt er denunciation of the 'English oligarchy and their hired assassin' to his fervent attempts to keep the Napoleonic legend alive through his son, 'The Last Will and Testament' illustrates the contradictions of the Corsican turned Fre nch man , th e ' pet it caporal' turned 'Empereur', the man turned superman and, finally, the man." Interior - light cigarette odor, slight browning in margins of pages, otherwise clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - light brow ning t o e dges of tex t block, browning to edges of covers. Very Good-
