of complete lithograph

Perry arrived at St Helena on January 10, 1853. Napoleon was exiled to Longwood on St Helena and spent 5 years (not quite but close) there before his death on the 1st of May, 1821. The crew visited the house where Napoleon was imprisoned in Longwood. They also visited the tomb where his ashes were interred until October of 1840 when they were returned to France. In this lithograph, the tomb is in the right foreground. A winding footpath leads the visitor to Napoleon's tomb which is surrounded by railings topped by spear-heads. The tomb area is surrounded by several trees, among which are 12 Cypress trees planted in 1840 in memory of Napoleon's twelve great victories.
