Up for auction are the Memoirs of Napoleon Bonaparte by Bourienne in Four Volumes published by H.M. Caldwell Co., New York and Boston, sometime before 1898. There is no publication date printed in the books.  However, there is an inscription in the front of Volume II that reads ''To Papa with love from Mamie. February 13, 1898.''  Also, I understand that the first edition of this set was published in 1885.  These books have red hardcovers with lovely ornate gold bindings and labels and gold tops of pages, four very nice illustrations in each volume next to the frontispieces of Napoleon, Empress Josephine, the Battle of Wagram, and the Battle of Waterloo, and many other detailed full-page black and white illustrations throughout the four volumes.  All volumes are tightly bound with very minimal rubbing to the edges of the covers or pages.  There are no markings in the volumes, other than the above-mentioned inscription at the front of Volume II.   All pages are present and are not ripped or stained.  The only imperfections I note are that about 1 1/2'' at the top of the front inside cover  of Volume III is ripped  (see picture #9) and that the books have a slight musty odor as they were found in boxes in a garage and had been stored there for many years.  Otherwise they are in very good condition for their age.  Each measures about 5'' wide, 7 1/2'' long, and 1 1/2'' deep.  Volume I has 449 pages, Volume II has 468 pages, Volume III has 483 pages, and Volume IV has 488 pages.
