106 pp, + 6 pages of b&w illustrations, 11" H. " '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 St. 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 and translated 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, from his bitter 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 Frenchman, the 'petit caporal' turned 'Empereur', the man turned superman and, finally, the man." Interior - light cigarette odour, slight browning in margins of pages, otherwise clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - light browning to edges of text block, browning to edges of covers.
