Description of the Vignali Collection of Relics of Napoleon
Staple-bound pamphlet
The Rosenbach Company, Philadelphia, 1924

A piece of Weird Philadelphia history. This is the catalog containing an entry for Napoleon's penis ("tendon.") After passing through various hands (sigh) it now resides with a uroligist in New Jersey.
