The Treaty of Paris, signed on 30 May 1814, ended the war between France and the Sixth Coalition, part of the Napoleonic Wars, following an armistice signed on 23 April between Charles, Count of Artois, and the allies. The treaty set the borders for France under the House of Bourbon and restored territories to other nations. It is sometimes called the First Peace of Paris, as another one followed in 1815.

This treaty signed on 30 May 1814, following an armistice signed on 23 April 1814 between Charles, Count of Artois, and the allies. Napoleon had abdicated as Emperor on 13 April, as a result of negotiations at Fontainebleau. Peace talks had started on 9 May between Talleyrand, who negotiated with the allies of Chaumont on behalf of the exiled Bourbon king Louis XVIII of France, and the allies.

The Treaty of Paris established peace between France and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, Russia, Austria, and Prussia, who in March had defined their common war aim in Chaumont. The Treaty was also signed by Portugal and Sweden while Spain signed shortly after in July. The allied parties did not sign a common document, but instead concluded separate treaties with France allowing for specific amendments.

These images are from an illustrated account of the celebrations to mark the Peace of 1814, which were particularly elaborate in the great London parks. The volume was written by Francis Blagdon, a jobbing publisher and journalist, co-editor of the Morning post, and a commercial as well as a political rival of William Cobbett. The scenes and events depicted include a fleet on the Serpentine commemorating Horatio Nelson's victory at the Battle of the Nile, a balloon ascent, a 'revolving temple of concord', and a Chinese bridge and pagoda erected in St James's Park.

Folio (326 x 258 mm). 64 p., [6] leaves of plates : col. ill. ; 38 cm.

Illustrations are color aquatints by M. Dubourg after John Heaviside Clark.
