Napoleon’s autobiography published by D’ORO Collection in 2016 is the new edition of the first publication of 1975. It is entirely handmade and available in numbered copies. This Volume is a collection of texts written or dictated by Napoleon himself. It contains a faithful description of his deeds in the grandeur and majesty of his historical times. As the introduction by Edvige Santiné explains, before coming up with the final draft of the work he had sketched out more than fifteen books without disguising any facts, despite the great difficulties.
This exquisite 253-page book is part of an exclusive series of 499 numbered volumes entirely hand-made and printed on a 220 gr/mq paper. The binding is executed by hand using blue-dyed leather and the finest Italian silk. The two covers are in leather with a central hand-made bas-relief in copper with a gold finish. This unique book contains Napoleon's autobiography in Italian (English translation available upon request) along with official documents written by the emperor. This precious object is adorned with 82 incisions.
