Exceedingly rare Napoleon occupation newspaper...



Item # 628641

January 5, 1811

COURRIER D'AMSTERDAM or the COURIER VAN AMSTERDAM, January 5, 1811 (No. 5) 

* Exceedingly rare Napoleon Bonaparte occupation newspaper

This was a daily newspaper published in Amsterdam during the French occupation of Holland. It is bilingual: half printed  in French and half in Dutch. Two mastheads as well, one in each language.
In 1810 Napoleon Bonaparte annexed Holland to his empire, hence this newspaper being in two languages. This issue was published during his occupation.  All of page3and half of page 4 is a document, signed in type by: Napoleon, concerning the annexing of Holland
In all my years of collecting rare newspapers I have only encountered five such issues, one of which resides in our private collection.
Complete in four pages, 9 1/2 by 15 1/2 inches, very nice condition.
