    Description

    Napoleon's Secretary Emmanuel de las Cases Document Signed, "Le Cte. de las Cases", one page, 4.25" x 6.5", Paris, November 9, 1812. 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 the first year of the emperor's exile to St. Helena, de las Cases served as Napoleon's secretary. During this period he compiled an immense body of information and published his writings in 1821 as Memorial de Ste. Helene.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
