Sloane, William Milligan. Life of Napoleon Bonaparte. New York: The Century Co., 1896. 4 large volumes, 4to (about 12 1/4" tall). Green covers with brown leather spines and corners. Edges worn, spine ends and corners chipped, library bookplates inside front covers and pockets at rear, top edges of pages gilt, internally very good. Many full page illustrations in each volume. The author has attempted to make available to the general reader, the full range of scholar. "By common consent the eminent man of the time was Napoleon Bonaparte, the revolution queller, the burgher sovereign, the imperial democrat, the supreme captain, the civil reformer, the victim of circumstances which his soaring ambition used but which his unrivaled prowess could not control. Gigantic in his proportions, and satanic in his fate, his was the most tragic figure on the stage of modern history."
