Official printed bulletin of the French Grand Army, authentic, document. This four page document is approximately 8" x 9"  in size and is dated January 27, 1806. It contains very interesting details and an impressive woodcut on the first page. These official bulletins were widely spread to the French citizenry informing them of important battles of the French Army as well as other military and political news.

This bulletin was produced by the printing house of Widow Hayes. In this particular issue, entitled "Official Detail of the Arrival of the Emperor and the Empress this night at Paris", a full description of a Senate session is given by order of the Emperor. An announcement is made of the adoption of Prince Eugene and of his inheritance of the crown of Italy, since the Emperor had no progeny himself. Reproduced on the second and third pages is a letter dated january 12, 1806 of Napoleon, dated from Munich, describing his reasons for adopting Prince Eugene as his son.

The French Grand Army first came to be when Napoleon I renamed the army that he had assembled on the French coast of the English Channel for the proposed Invasion of Britain. The name was later re-deployed at the threat of the Austrian and Russian Armies and thereafter was used as the official name for all French army forces.

This printed document is in good to very good condition, with overall light toning not affecting any of the wording. The pages are held together at the left margin affixed to a stock piece of paper.
