Peter maintains the world’s largest private collection of letters written by and furniture owned by Joseph Bonaparte, the elder brother of Napoleon Bonaparte. Joseph was at one time King of Naples and later King of Spain. Peter recently curated an exhibition of his Bonaparte collection, which was profiled in The New York Times. Peter also appeared in a television documentary, “Bonaparte’s Retreat,” which has aired many times on PBS.
