Napoleon for Children!
While selecting books for a children’s display, we came across this amazing illustrated work on the life of Napoleon! Printed in Paris around 1893, the book tells Napoleon’s story mostly through a series of charming chromolithographs. Among our most favorite illustrations are cute baby Napoleon chillin’ with a lion-skinned rug as all great men do, receiving a salute from an impeccable pooch, and perhaps most poetically, leaping into the great beyond!
See this and much, much more at this year’s Baltimore Book Fest! Bonsoir!
