A French language manuscript on official government stationery imprinted "Conseil d'Etat" on the masthead. Uneven top border as made, some loss to corners from mounting. Overall toning as expected. Very good condition. The Comte de las Cases (1766 - 1841) was born into the French nobility, however he came to repudiate the Royalist cause and followed Napoleon's fortunes.

During this period he compiled an immense body of information and published his writings in 1821 as Memorial de Ste. Helene.
