The administrative correspondance of Vivant Denon
Dominique Vivant-Denon, the Directeur des musées during the Consulate and Empire periods, corresponded frequently not only with Napoleon but also with French museum professionals and artists. This corpus comprises more than 3,000 of his letters.
Conseil d'État corpus
As a result of a request by the Government and as part of the Constitution de l’an VIII, the Conseil d’État was given the role of preparing and discussing the projects for French laws and regulations. Between 1800 and 1814, the Conseil d’État processed on average 5,700 or so dossiers per year.

After the defeat of Waterloo, a Provisional Governmental commission was set up in France. That institution’s correspondence are held at the French National Archives. Napoleonica Les Archives is soon to offer access to a new corpus of texts.
