Study for The Distribution of the Eagle Standards, c1808, (1921). Creator: Jacques-Louis David

Study for The Distribution of the Eagle Standards, c1808, (1921). La distribution des aigles au Champ-de-Mars'. Emperor Napoleon I (1769-1821) distributes eagles based on the Roman aquila of the legions of Rome, as the winged figure of Nike, the goddess of victory, floats over the troops. The standards represented the regiments raised by the various departments of France. Preliminary sketch for a painting titled Serment de l'armee fait a l'empereur apres la distribution des aigles au champ de Mars, 5 decembre 1804, (Oath of the army made to the emperor after the distribution of the eagles at the field of Mars, 5 December 1804). Painted in 1810 by Jacques-Louis David, the scene is a military ceremony arranged by Napoleon after his assumption of power as Emperor of the French, in which he sought to revive the military ethos and pageantry of the Roman Empire. From "Napoleon", by Raymond Guyot, [H. Floury, Paris, 1921]

First telegraph despatch from Lyon, 4 March 1815, (1921). Creator: Unknown Featured Print

First telegraph despatch from Lyon, 4 March 1815, (1921). Creator: Unknown

First telegraph despatch from Lyon, 4 March 1815, (1921). Premiere depeche telegraphique de Lyon'. Message sent via French inventor Claude Chappe's (1763-1805) optical telegraph (semaphore) system, devised in 1793. Messages were converted into semaphore using movable arms on the tops of repeater towers which were placed from 12 to 25 km (10 to 20 miles) apart. The message was read through a telescope, then relayed it to the next tower. Messages sent from Paris could reach the outer fringes of the country in a matter of three or four hours. Before, it had taken despatch riders on horseback a similar number of days. Chappe's system was in use until about 1850 when electric telegraph systems replaced it. This message states that the emperor has arrived on the coast of France with 1600 men'. Facsimile document from "Napoleon", by Raymond Guyot, [H. Floury, Paris, 1921]

Draft of the...reestablishment of the Gregorian calendar, 29 August 1805, (1921). Creator: Unknown

Draft of the senate consultation on the reestablishment of the Gregorian calendar, 29 August 1805, (1921). Projet de senatus-consulte retablissement le calendrier gregorien'. Document signed by Emperor Napoleon I and dated Dec[ade] 12 Fructidor, an 13, dealing with the reintroduction of the Gregorian calendar, replacing the French Republican calendar. Also known as the French Revolutionary calendar, the system was implemented during the French Revolution and used for about 12 years from late 1793 to 1805, (and for 18 days by the Paris Commune in 1871). The intention had been to remove all religious and royalist influences from the calendar, and was part of a larger attempt at decimalisation in France.
