“View of Buonaparte’s New Mansion”

From "A Traveller’s Notebook, or From Buonaparte to Longwood" - 1819

After a few months in Jamestown, the port of St. Helena, Napoléon was moved five miles away to Longwood, a converted farmhouse at 1,700 feet elevation. Here he would spend the last five and a half years of his life in a suite of rooms comprising a study, drawing room, antechamber, bathroom and bedroom. Napoléon received this book about himself while in exile in 1820.
