From the Publisher's Note: "The present work contains particulars of the great Napoleon not to be found in any other publication, and forms an interesting addition to the information already known about him. The writer of the letters (whose name is said to have been Stewarton, and who had been a friend of the Empress Josephine in her happier, if less brilliant days) gives full accounts of the lives of nearly all of Napoleon's Ministers and Generals, in addition to those of a great number of other characters, and an insight into the inner life of those who formed Napoleon's Court." 349 pages, illustrated with five photogravures (tissue guards for each).
