Courier Extraordinaire envoyé par Buonaparte, apportant la nouvelle de la paix défini[ti]ve
l’Imprimerie de Leguay 1797 - Small broadsheet (2 ll. folio, overall 26.5 x 21.5 cm), uncut. Collates 4 pp. printed on laid paper. Near fine, bright and crisp with only negligible soiling around outer margins. This primary resource in Napoleonic history includes Bonaparte’s announcement, by way of an extraordinary envoy sent from Milan, of the preliminaries that led to the Treaty of Campo Formio in October, 1797. An example of the Napoleonic propaganda apparatus beginning and ending with patriotic military tracts, the broadsheet publishes a “credible” copy, described as circulating in Italy, of the Treaty of Milan signed 27 floréal, an V (May 16, 1797) ending the war of Venice, and the secret articles of the Treaty ceding Milan to Austria. The broadsheet also reports current news dated 23 thermidor (August 10) of the peace negotiated with Portugal, the arrival of letters dated 12 thermidor (July 30) announcing the liberation of Rome, and an account of the status of the negotiation between Malmesbury’s envoy and the French legation in Lille.
