About this Item

2 volumes. First edition. With 19 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. xxiii, 454; xvi, 427 pp., 3 ads. A very handsome, very bright set with no sign of fading to the blue cloth and with the gilt still sparkling fresh, the text very bright and clean, some unobtrusive markings on the rear cover of volume two. IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION AND A FINE SET. 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.
