There appear to have been two versions printed. This version - which was the engravings only, There was also another version, printed simultaneously, with letterpress text to one leaf to accompany the smaller engravings (they are about half the size of our engravings). This latter published by Harper & Co. Original paper covered boards. These have black text within a decorated border, and red leather spine. The boards are somewhat rubbed, and have staining to them (particularly the front board). Still sturdy though. Title page, 12 double leaf plates with blank reverse. These are still very attractive, but have some water staining to the edges - particularly of the later pages. This is faded a little, and does not really affect the plates. Conforms to OCLC: 181773865 which FirstSearch records only one library copy at McMaster in California. The original paintings have been attributed to Pierre-Antoine Demachy (1723-1807) left a large number of views of Paris, and who showed a particular interest in Napoleon's major architectural improvements. 430 by 380mm (17 by 15 inches).

    . Première édition. Un ouvrage majestueux, montrant le Paris rénové de Napoléon dans toute sa splendeur. Complet. Illustré de 12 gravures à double page. Les vues panoramiques comprennent : L'école militaire et l'église des Invalides ; Vue de Paris depuis le boulevard sud ; Vue de Paris depuis Montmartre ; Vue sud de l'ancien et du nouveau Louvre ; La Monnaie et la façade du Louvre ; Vue de la place de la Concorde ; Le jardin de la façade ouest des Tuileries ; Palais des Tuileries face à la place du Carrousel ; Jardin des Tuileries ; Le Luxembourg ou Palais du Senat avec les jardins ; Les champs élyséens, jardins lointains des Tuileries ; Entrée des Champs Élysées et de la place de la Concorde. Il semble qu'il y ait eu deux versions imprimées. Il y eut également une autre version, imprimée simultanément, avec un texte en typographie sur une feuille pour accompagner les gravures plus petites (elles ont environ la moitié de la taille de nos gravures). Cette dernière a été publiée par Harper & Co. Tableaux originaux recouverts de papier. Le texte est en noir dans une bordure décorée et le dos est en cuir rouge. Les planches sont quelque peu frottées et présentent des taches (en particulier sur la première planche). L'ouvrage est néanmoins solide. Page de titre, 12 planches à double feuille avec un verso vierge. Celles-ci sont encore très attrayantes, mais présentent quelques taches d'eau sur les bords, en particulier sur les dernières pages. Ces taches sont un peu estompées et n'affectent pas vraiment les planches. Conforme à OCLC : 181773865 dont FirstSearch ne signale qu'un seul exemplaire de bibliothèque à McMaster en Californie. Les peintures originales ont été attribuées à Pierre-Antoine Demachy (1723-1807) qui a laissé un grand nombre de vues de Paris et qui a montré un intérêt particulier pour les améliorations architecturales majeures de Napoléon. 430 x 380 mm.

The blue indicating the flooded areas is somewhat faded, but still visible.

    The February flood of 1825, also known in Germany as the Great Hallig Flood (Große Halligflut), was a devastating flood that occurred from 3 to 5 February 1825 on the North Sea coast, in which about 800 people were drowned.
    In the Netherlands, the February flood was the worst natural disaster of the 19th century. Most of the dead and the worst damage was in Groningen, Friesland and Overijssel. The reaction at national level was quite similar to that during the flood of 1953; yet the event was surprisingly quickly forgotten once the damage had been repaired and had no political or engineering consequences. It needed the disaster of 1953 in order for a delta law to be passed and to improve coastal protection significantly.
