Napoleonic Wars Military Broadside
Broadside. Printed in Vienna at the Government Palace, July 12, 1809. Measures 14" x 15.25".
Bilingual broadside in French and German posted during Napoleon's second occupation of Vienna. The notice demands that the population contribute their subsistence and housing to the French occupying forces. It is interesting to note that a version of this Broadside currently housed in the permanent collection of the University of California at Berkeley appears on the internet in French only. Fine condition.
