Child’s Doodle in an 1822 Book About Napoleon

Things you find on a flea market, season 3, episode 10. That’s a first doodle I have in my collection. And what a doddle! I love it! The book is the second volume of Napoléon en exil à Sainte-Hélène by Barry Edward O’Meara printed in 1822.

Even while the binding isn’t in good condition, the printing date makes it the oldest book in my collection as well.
