Barbara Cartland: Josephine
In 1973, Arrow published this biography of Josephine by Barbara Cartland. Josephine is the woman behind Napoleon during the early 1800's. This is a interesting story of a woman who lived a passionate life!
Francis Marshall illustrates Josephine on a chaise lounge, with the Emperor Napoleon standing behind. She is a beautiful woman, dressed in the regency style of her day and wearing incredible jewelry! Note her pug dog beside her! It's a cover that makes one want to pick up the book and read about the woman pictured!
