1 Hazlitt, William. THE LIFE OF THE NAPOLEON BUONAPARTE.
Philadelphia J.B. Lippincott & Co. c1890 
3 vols: x+431pp, vi+449pp, vii+431pp. VG contemporary 1/4/ cloth Hazlitt (1778-1830) was a prominent opposition author and editor. He saw Napoleon as the champion of the oppressed; was 'confounded' by the first abdication; 'rejoiced' in the Hundred Days; and was 'thrown into the pit' by Waterloo. He began work on his great book in 1827 and died immedately after its completion in 1830. 'If Bonaparte was a conqueror, he conquered the grand conspiracy of Kings against the right of the human race to be free...if he was arbitrary and a tyrant, first France as a country was in a state of military blockade...and not to be defended by mere paper bullets of the brain.' Still one of the most intelligent and passionate defences of Napoleon's career. A stupendous copy of this important biography.
