Unusual twice-signed 1806 military document, endorsed in Napoleon's hand

Manuscript DS, in French, signed “Napole" and "Np,” one page, 7.25 x 11.5, September 20, 1806. Untranslated military document concerning the raising of a cavalry regiment, endorsed at the top by Napoleon with a multi-word approval, signing twice below. Impressively double-cloth-matted and framed to an overall size of 15 x 24. In very good to fine condition, with scattered light foxing and intersecting folds. It is rare to find a Napoleon document with more than a single-word endorsement, much less two signatures from the esteemed French commander. A spectacular military document from the legendary Bonaparte.
