203pp, 8 plates. Original gilt cloth, vg+ copy. Two very amusing journals. Ussher, describing a stop at Capraja island, where the French garrison was still unaware of the Emperor's abdication: 'Napoleon held a long conversation with the members of the delegation, who expressed the utmost surprise at finding their Emperor aboard a British Man-of-War.'(!!) Glover too has many interesting observations to make about Napoleon and his entourage, whose 'servility is more abject than an Englishman who has not witnessed it can possibly conceive.'
