Stipple, proof before title, rare. Sheet 160 x 105mm (6¼ x 4¼"). Trimmed.
An oval portrait of Napoleon in relatively-plain uniform, probably celebrating his success as an artillery commander of the republican forces at the siege of Toulon, which led to his promotion to brigadier general aged only 24. As he is unrecognisable it is probably an early portrait, as the publishers seem to think that no one would question the inaccuracy.
