COURRIER D'AMSTERDAM or the COURIER VAN AMSTERDAM, Nov. 1, 1811

* 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.
A very rare and unusual newspaper which seldom comes on the market.
Complete in four pages, 9 1/2 by 15 1/2 inches, very nice condition.
