First published as Campagnes des Français en Italie, ou histoire militaire, politique et philosophique de la Rèvolution in 1798, this is one of the earliest military histories of the French revolutionary wars. The present 1802 edition includes an extra volume with an account of the battle of Marengo, a crucial French victory which won the 1800 Italian campaign for Napoleon and drove the Austrians out of most of Italy, and Napoleon’s campaign in Egypt, which, when it failed, ended all Napoleon’s aspirations for empire in the Orient.

Not in Horward, Napoloenic military history, a bibliography. There is a copy in the British Library but none are found in COPAC. OCLC locates a copy, at Loyola University of Chicago.

Dedicated with permission to the Rt. Hon. Earl Mulgrave, Master General of the Ordnance, &c. &c. &c. This print is intended to commemorate the illustrious return of Field Marshal the Duke of Wellington, and that proud period, when after a glorious career of victory, and the deliverance of Spain and Portugal by British valour and perseverance, the English standard was planted before the walls of Bayonne, and the legitimate sovereign of France recalled to add his seal to the general peace of Europe!

On his return from the Peninsular campaign, Wellington first took his seat in the House of Lords and was officially welcomed by the Queen at Buckingham House on 28 June, four days after the publication of this tribute by Edward Orme.
