DescriptionNapoleon Bonaparte Document Annotated and Signed, "Nap". One page, 7.75" x 8.25" (sight), June 23, 1814, Portoferraio, Elba, in French. Napoleon annotates and endorses a report to "La Majesté l'Empereur" from General Antoine Drouot regarding the administration of the Island of Elba. Framed with an engraving of the Emperor (24.5" x 21.75" overall). Light toning and foxing, else fine.
Following his unconditional abdication, the Treaty of Fontainebleau gave Napoleon sovereignty over the island of Elba and allowed him to retain his title of Emperor. General Drouot, already Napoleon's aide-de-camp, followed his Emperor into exile along and became Governor of Elba. In the first few months of exile Napoleon created a small navy and army on the island and developed iron mines. He also issued decrees modernizing agricultural methods. After three hundred days on Elba, Napoleon, with Drouot by his side, made a brief comeback known as the Hundred Days.
