About this Item

First Single Volume edition and overall, the Second Edition, Revised. Embracing the Correction or Amplification of Certain Details. With 12 portraits and illustrations and 21 maps and plans. Thick 8vo, publisher’s original navy blue cloth gilt lettered on spine, decorated in gilt on upper cover, t.e.g. [xx], 764 pp. A handsome and clean copy with no sign of fading and only light evidence of use or age. AN IMPORTANT WORK. Perhaps the finest, most accurate, and detailed biography of Lord Admiral Nelson ever published. Nelson, of course, is known for his illustrious naval career which culminated at the battle of Trafalgar, where under his command the English decimated the Napoleonic fleet and prevented them from reaching the Continent. Mahan, a captain in the United States Navy, was one of the greatest naval historians of the 19th and early 20th centuries and serves the life of Nelson well in this finely crafted narrative. This is the George Skelton Streeter Copy. The Streeter family was highly important in the gem and minerals industry during the 19th and early 20th centuries. They established the first important ruby mines and concessions in Upper Burma after the English settled themselves into the area. Streeter accompanied the first military expedition to the ruby mines, and visited the district twice, supplying on occasion to the Journal of the Society of Arts, graphic and detailed accounts of the mining district and the system on which the mines were worked by there Burmese owners.
