[Imola]: tipografia comunale per Gianbenedetto Filippini, 1811. First edition. A few tiny tears at folds else a fine, untrimmed copy.. Broadside. 49 x 38 cm. Announcing a series of celebrations of the baptism of Napoléon II (1811-1832), known from birth as the King of Rome, son of Napoleon and his second wife, Marie Louise of Austria. Issued in Imola, the original seat of the provisional government of the Cispandane Republic, later merged with the Transpadane Republic, forming the Cisalpine Republic, in turn merged into the new Italian Republic, and then 1805, following Bonaparte's assumption of the title of Emperor of the French, transformed into the Kingdom of Italy, Regno d'Italia, as it is here. After declaring that the people of Imola are second to none in their loyalty to Napoleon, the proclamation notes a series of activities: poems to be read, canon shots and the pealing of bells at dawn, cash prizes to those being married and those who gave birth on the King of Rome's birthday, food for the poor and for those imprisoned, and at night, the town is to be illuminated, and there will be presentations at the theater, a symphony concert, and a ball. One copy at Biblioteca comunale, Imola. No other copies shown at any North American or other European Libraries.
