1915. Classic three-volume set of memoirs by Napoleon's valet. In this volume M. Constant describes Napoleon's castle in Schonbrunn: It was the rendezvous of all the illustrious savants of Germany. Not a new work was brought out, not a curious invention made its appearance, but the Emperor at once gave orders to have their authors presented to him. It was thus that M. Maelzel, the famous mechanical who invented the metronome, was admitted to the honor of offering to His Majesty several pieces of his invention.
