This panoramic volume tells the story of French life from the 1770s to 1820s and the stormy period of social change with the outbreak of the French Revolution, and the rise to power of the young Napoleon Bonaparte and his wife Josephine. Together the couple defined taste for a new century, and in the age of exploration developed a particular fascination for Australia.
The book is a magnificant production and of special interest to Christadelphians who see from the Vials of Revelation the prophecies of this significant emperor of France.
