Napoleon in Exile; or, A Voice from St. Helena. The Opinions and Reflections of Napoleon on the Most Important Events of his Life and Government, in his Own Words. Fourth Edition.
London: W. Simpkin and R. Marshall, 1822 - 2 volumes, octavo (219 × 140 mm). Bound in late 19th century red half morocco, marbled sides, titles to spines gilt, gilt compartments and raised bands to spine, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Tips a little worn, occasional very minor foxing. An excellent set. Frontispieces and a plate. Presentation copy, inscribed on the first blank: "From Dr Stanier Clarke, Canon of Windsor - for many repeated marks of attention." James Stanier Clarke (1766–1834), an English cleric, naval author and librarian to the Prince of Wales, and author of the Life of Lord Nelson. O'Meara's account of Napoleon was savagely attacked by the critics upon publication, and Sir Hudson Lowe considered legal action, but this did nothing to damage its popularity. This is the fourth edition; it went through five editions in the first year of publication. Sandler 2571; Tulard 759.
