Correspondance générale de Napoléon Bonaparte : Tome 1, Les apprentissages 1784-1797
Description: This first volume of the Correspondance générale de Napoléon, published by the Fondation Napoléon, contains 2283 letters written between 1784 and 1797. As a result of three years of searching in French and other national archives, not to mention the collaboration of private collectors, Napoleon students and enthusiasts can now read either previously unpublished letters or letters previously published in expurgated fashion during the Second Empire. Since each letter is annotated, this edition can rightfully be considered as the latest word on the subject.

This week’s book(s):
Description: We are delighted to announce this week the winners of this year's Fondation Napoléon History Prizes! Competition this year was very stiff, with a remarkable number of meticulously researched, lavishly produced, brilliantly argued works under consideration, but our Jury managed to whittle them down to just three. The 2014 First Empire Prize is awarded to Irène Delage and Chantal Prévot's Atlas de Paris au temps de Napoléon; the 2014 Second Empire Prize to Étienne Chilot's Un jardin pour Eugénie; and the Jury Prize to Andrew Roberts for his Napoleon the Great. The award ceremony will take place in the Hôtel de Charost, the British Ambassador's residence in France and former home of Napoleon I's sister, Pauline Borghese, on 9 December.
Our warmest congratulations to all our winners!
