    Signed by Napoleon's Personal Physician

    [Napoleon]. François Carlo Antommarchi. Mémoires du Docteur F. Antommarchi ou les Derniers Momens de Napoleon. Paris: Chez Barrois l'Ainé, 1825. First edition of this excellent account of Napoleon's last years, written by his personal physician. One of an unknown number of copies signed by Antommarchi on the verso of the title-page in volume I. Two octavo volumes. Bound with half-titles. Contemporary green marbled boards, skilfully rebacked to style in later olive calf, ruled, tooled, and lettered in gilt. Spines just barely dull, some rubbing to boards, some moderate foxing in text, previous owner's neat signature in each volume. Still, a very good copy of this compelling account of Napoleon's final years, written by the doctor who attended him in exile. From a private collection from New Orleans.
