Philadelphia: M Carey, 1815.
Flexible leather. Very Good- with no dust jacket. Item #14902
Later rebind, some dampstaining, annotations in margins, light tone, otherwise light wear. Solid flexible leather covers. ; Scarce American account of the fall of Napoleon after Waterloo and forced abdication, the maneuvering to create a French solution acceptable to the victorious Allies, the arrival of the Allied forces outside Paris, rumors of a resurrected French army with Napoleon at the head, and the imposition of Louis XVIII as king by the Allies ending the hopes of the Republicans. Virginia-born Robertson at the time was Louisiana's sole Representative to the US Congress, and later would become its third Governor. His sympathies lie with the Republicans, and he is a strong Anglophobe. Marginalia by the prior owner shares that dream of a French Republic or Napoleonic recovery. Altogether an uncommon first person account by an insightful American of the end of the Napoleonic Empire and French republican dreams. ; [v]-viii, -80,  ad pages.
