463pp., This story will, it is hoped by the author to be read as a tale, to stand or fall upon its merits as a tale. But for the reader who wishes to know to what extent an honest effort has been made to convey historic truth, a note will be found at the end of the book to be read or not, as he pleases, when the tale is done. A Napoleonic story. Handsomely bound in 3/4 red morocco over silk cloth, raised bands lettered in gilt, stamped in gilt with an eagle and N within wreath, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers, no names or bookplates. A very nice copy.
