Victory To The Arts  

RRP: £50.00
OUR PRICE: £9.99  Black Friday Price £7.99

This scholarly work is a pleasure to read as well as being a true feast to the eyes. For the medal collector this book is a must, and readers of Napoleonic books are advised to add a copy to their bookshelves. Complete with over 280 colour photographs, "Napoleon's Medals" is a lavish pictorial history of Bonaparte's vision of immortality. This is an extraordinary book, of superb quality that was produced in a strictly limited numbered edition.
During his time in power, Napoleon Bonaparte commissioned hundreds of medals to be struck to mark the course of his reign; from conquests, successful treaties and marriage, to the introduction of the smallpox vaccination and an unsuccessful attempt on his own life. "Napoleon's Medals" sheds light on this neglected artistic achievement; how Napoleon's artists displayed the stolen art from his Italian campaign on the medals to glorify his conquests, and used classical models to clothe him with heroic attributes. No previous publication has combined both detailed commentary and colour illustration in addressing this fascinating topic. Richard A. Todd provides a history of Napoleon's reign through the medallions themselves, aided by insights from Napoleon's letters, those of his artistic director Vivant Denon, and "Le Moniteur", the newspaper of the day. Overseas clients please note: Due to excessively high wrapped weight shipping is weighted on this title.
