Featuring over 400 never-before-seen objects, The Private Life of Napoléon allows a glimpse into the inner world of the French emperor. Over the course of 24 years, collector Bruno Ledoux amassed a remarkable range of manuscripts, books, gold jewelry, porcelains, miniatures, arms, and even historic souvenirs, all created in honor of Napoléon and the French empire. The collection includes diplomatic gifts, masterpieces crafted by major French artisans, and more modest objects, each offering a window into Napoléon’s day-to-day life. With commentary from a team of leading experts and historians, this richly illustrated work on one of the most famous figures of all time traces nearly a century of French history, from the last years of the Revolution until Napoléon's exile to St. Helena.
