Facts, Illustrative of the Treatment of Napoleon Buonaparte in Saint Helena.
- London: William Stockdale, 1819 Slim 8vo, (4), 156pp. (inc. ads at end). With a frontispiece and two aquatint color plates. Old straightgrain russia rebacked, in a quarter brown morocco box (faded). An evocative presentation of Napoleonic history, the box containing a lovely rich gilt frame with an eagle on the top enclosing a fragment of what looks like green wallpaper inscribed in ink on the back (and repeated on the plaque) "morceau de tapisserie de la chambre ˆ coucher de l'Empereur Napoleon ˆ Ste. Helene apporte par Theophile". HookÕs anonymous pamphlet caused quite a stir at the time, as he attempted to vindicate the actions of Governor Lowe in relation to allegations against him made by OÕMeara who had refused to pass information to Lowe regarding Napoleon, whom he attended as physician at St. Helena.
