1811, Constitutions of Henry Christophe
The formation of the new dynasty of the Kingdom of Hayti … by a near relation to Bonaparte, Henry Christophe: n.a., 15+(1)p, pr. at Philadelphia :
[s.n.], 1811. (At head of title: Correct translation from the original. Contents: “Constitutional law of the Council of State, which establishes the
Kingdom of Hayti {1811-20}; The Council of State, to the people and to the army of Hayti, both by land and sea; Edict of the King, which erects an
archbishopric within the capital of Haiti, and bishoprics in other cities; Edict creating nobility of the Kingdom and ordinance determining its costumes.”
The allusion to author-ship by a “near relation to Bonaparte” is, of course, only aspirational; reflecting the conscious effort of King Henry to model
his court after that of Napoleon.)
Title:   The formation of the new dynasty of the Kingdom of Hayti, formerly the island of Saint Domingo / by a near relation to Bonaparte, Henry Christophe.
