Notes

Reprinted almost immediately numerous times in various languages and countries, this is the first edition of the account of his death by Napoleon's final physician. The second volume is padded out with a substantial description of the flora of St Helena. An atlas volume containing a few plates, separately published but under the same title, is rarely found with the set but is sometimes mentioned as if called for.
