Napoleon Bonaparte 1800 French Engraving Marengo Battle Boullion Auduoin France For Sale

Napoleon Bonaparte 1800 French Engraving Marengo Battle Boullion Auduoin France

WOW!!! A RARE and VERY EARLY Napoleon Bonaparte original French engraving!
This awesome old engraving is a dandy... you can see the edges within the paper from where it was originally pressed! The tinting is good quality too. The print is approximately 13" x 17" (it's well framed and I didn't want to take it out of the frame until it sells so it shall have safe storage in the meanwhile... BUT I shall remove this item from the frame at the time of shipping and shall ONLY BE SELLING THE PRINT ITSELF, not the frame it is currently within... it shall ship more safely and more easily unframed... in a special shipping tube).
The engraving includes a handsome portrait image of the then young and up-starting General Bonaparte, who was only yet known as First Consul / Premier Consul of the French Republic.
The Battle of Marengo (shown at bottom) occurred in 1800... thus I believe this engraving is from within a year or two from that time (1800)... another clue for age is the fact that he is referred to only by his last name "Bonaparte" instead of Napoleon (he didn't crown himself until a few years later and then became known by only his first name as self-declared "Emperor Napoleon"... and this print also refers to him as being the First Consul of the Republic of France / 1er Consul de la Rep. Franc..... which was his title between only 1799 and 1804).
I don't believe this was part of a series... but was used with general propaganda to trumpet the country's new and rising general-leader. Perhaps it was issued with a news paper edition or some other national periodical?
All text is in French... another indication it is likely very early and original to the time frame of his initial rise to power.
"P. Boullion, del" is printed in fine font at lower left of portrait section... the opposite side has "P. Auduoin, Sculp." I believe one must be the artist and perhaps the other the engraver?
You can barely tell there was a single short line of handwritten writing along the top margin to the left above the image and also another handwritten single short line along the lower right boarder... , but the ink has long since faded. (engraver's handwritten signature?)
"Deposee a la Bibliotheque Nationale le Vendemiaire, Au IX" is printed in center just below the battle image blue line (blue line reads: "Bataille de Marengo, Commandee Par Le 1er Consul En Personne, Le 25 Prairlal An 8"... in very fine print on left upper of blue line: "Duplessi-Bertaux vw & Sculp.").
"A. Paris. chex DANLOS, quai Malaqua. 1." is printed at the very bottom left as part of original engraving (not handwritten afterwards).
See accompanying digital photographs... (and please pardon any noticeable flash glare).
Great find... excellent condition! Whoever had this framed had it done very nicely. I found two similar examples online that are part of museum collections, but could find no others currently for sale anywhere else.
IMPORTANT SHIPPING INFO: Buyer shall pay actual shipping costs... item shall be shipped from 01561 zip code in Massachusetts. I estimate the final package should measure approximately 6" x 18" x 22" in dimension and ought to weigh approximately 7 pounds. I am not sure if is calculating the correct shipping estimate, so if you have any questions regarding shipping please inquire asap. If you are the winning buyer, please send me your zip code and let me know if you desire to have this insured for shipping so I may properly calculate the shipping cost at my local post office before I send the final invoice for payment. THANK YOU!
PLEASE KINDLYNOTE: IF THIS DOESN'T SELL THIS WEEK I MAY INCLUDE IT WITH A GROUPING TO BE SOLD AT THE BRIMFIELD, MA ANNUAL ANTIQUE SHOW NEXT WEEK... SO IF YOU HAVE INTEREST DON'T WAIT FOR "ROUND TWO" ON ... THERE MAY NOT BE ANY FURTHER SALE OFFERING HERE FOR THIS ITEM.
