Media: Napoleon, Book & Exhibition

Napoleon Cordier

On a recent visit to Topping bookshop in Ely, I had a very brief browse of a splendid large hardback on 1st Empire  glory, which was, I think, the Yale University Press publication Napoleon.

This sumptuous book is partner to a touring exhibition, currently showing in the U.S. and heading for the Museum at the Chateau of Fontainebleau, later in 2019. Sadly this affaire is not destined to come to the shores of perfidious Albion.

I’m seriously tempted to get this book. And I’d love to visit France to see the show, later in the year. The video above is a very short thing by Yale, giving a brief glimpse at the book. The video below is Napoleonic enthusiast Nicholas Hoare enthusing about it and thumbing through it, at slightly greater length.
