Given little early schooling, Joséphine could barely read until she was a young adult. After learning, she developed a passion for books. The library at Malmaison covered a broad range of topics, showing the Imperial couple’s interests and intellect. With her prayer book, bound in red Morocco leather, is a volume from Delandine’s New Historical Dictionary 1804, evidencing the love of history she shared with her husband.
