  • THE LIFE OF NAPOLEON BONAPARTE, 1828. Two Volume Set

    Two volume set of the Life of Napoleon Bonaparte. Printed in 1828. I'm not a book collector, so I have a limited knowledge about the condition of antique books. These have been in my family for many, many years. They are in my opinion, in good shape. I just think that they need to belong to someone who will take good care of them, and has an appreciation for them. Look at the photos for more on their condition. I can send more photos if you're interested, or if you need me to tell you more about whats written in the books, let me know
