The Rose of Martinique: A Life of Napoleon's Josephine

By: Andrea Stuart

Price: £18.00

Quantity: 1 available


With the dismissive epigram ' Not tonight Josephine ', history has relegated Napoleon's empress to the role of mere boudoir distraction. Bedazzled by her more famous husband, biographers have neglected Josephine's own life story - a story that encompassed Caribbean slave revolts, arranged marriage, revolutionary politics and the threat of the guillotine, before she even met the man whose historical shadow all but obliterated her own. The red boards are fine the D/W shows light wear to its edges.
