    NAPOLEON BONAPARTE TOPICAL COLLECTION. Beginning with what is probably a 19th century early print of a sitting Napoleon in contemplative mood at Fontainebleau March 1814, leading on to the stamps including a scarce US 10cts mint Louisiana Purchase, also then French Colonies galore including French Polynesia with the 100fr airmail mint and all the rest. This also relates to anything and anybody related to Napoleon and his life including 1000fr gold of Cameroons, as well as Paraguay»s tribute to Napoleons wives (and love affairs), various se-tenants, miniature sheets, tributes to Russian generals that defeated Napoleon, etc. Finally the collection ends appropriately with his death mask from Gabon. Many more countries here, all linked to this unusual theme, a considerable collection and an enjoyable viewing.
