NAPOLEON BONAPARTE, Emperor of France, manuscript note signed “Napoleon” dated 07/26/1811 with co-signers at the Château de Saint-Cloud. Napoleon writes the prefect of the Lot and boldly signs it in the margin of the report. Ncludes complimentary original BECKETT BAS “Signature Review” Pre-Certification as “LIKELY TO PASS FULL AUTHENTICATION”. Report signed by the Minister of War, Clarke, Duke of Feltre, and annotated and countersigned by NAPOLEON about a desertion of conscripts. It is not the old soldiers who desert, but the conscripts of 1811 provided by the department of the Lot. A certain number of these conscripts having successively abandoned the depot, they were obliged to consign the others to Fort Saint-Jean; many of them having taken advantage of the escape, of the moment of exit required by the parade and other exercises. The prefect of the Lot, who had knowledge of their flight, had 43 of them arrested. Otherwise in fine condition. Signature is bold and clear. Château de Saint-Cloud was a palace in France, and the main seat of the Bonaparte family. It was later destroyed in the Franco-Prussian war. Elegantly framed and archivally matted to handsome matte black frame with gold accents. Exquisite PH-neutral navy blue brushed suede mat. Also includes descriptive museum style plaque and featuring handsome antique portrait of NAPOLEON framed together under heavyweight, conservation-grade 98% UV-BLOCKING polystyrene pane.
