DANZIG UNDER NAPOLEON: 1807-1813. From July 1807 to September 1808, there was a field post office of the Grande Armee (bureau sedentaire) at Danzig. Entire Letter dated 4 February 1808 with red N.o 59 / GRANDE ARMEE in red to Caen, Dept de Calvados.
The sender (Aide De Camp to General Lamartiniere) mentions some interesting developments (3 pages) including a major fire that destroyed 60 homes and caused considerable damage and he also speaks of General Oudinot and General Lamartiniere, commander of the Artillery at Danzig. RARE & HIGHLY DESIRABLE, very fine and interesting content! Signed Migliavacca
