Life of Napoleon Bonaparte.
New York: The Century Company, 1909 - 4 volumes, quarto. Recent burgundy morocco, titles and decoration to spines gilt, raised bands, single rule to boards, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Small remnant alongside the gutter from the original front free endpaper to the verso of the frontispiece in volume 1, an excellent copy. Colour frontispiece and numerous monochrome illustrations. First published in 1896. William Milligan Sloane was professor of history at Princeton University, and editor of both the Political Science Quarterly and the American Historical Review. In conversation, the late John Sandler, pre-eminent British Napoleonic collector, revealed that Sloane had been the cornerstone of his remarkable collection, purchased by him at the age of 7 from a bouquiniste on the Embankment.
