About this Item

Duodecimo. Pp. x, 181. With full-page maps and battle plans. Charming engraved vignette illustrations, often as tail-pieces. Hardcover, bound in the original publisher's navy blue cloth, sides ornately embossed in blind, upper cover with naval illustration in gilt, spine decorated and lettered in gilt, all edges gilt; some wear to spine-ends, old signature to first flyleaf. In a very good condition. A clean, handsome copy. ~ Scarce. Published under the direction of the Committee of general literature and education, appointed by the Society for promoting Christian knowledge. George Lathom Browne (1815-1892) wrote "Nelson: The public and private life of Horatio, Viscount Nelson as told by himself, his comrades, and his friends" (1891); and "Wellington: or, the public and private life of Arthur, first Duke of Wellington, as told by himself, his comrades, and his intimate friends" (1889); as well as many books on public law. "No description of a man as he really is, surpasses that which is contained in the plain straightforward relation of his thoughts, feelings, acts, and intentions, in private letters designed for the perusal of those alone to whom they were addressed," he writes in the Preface to "The Life of Horatio". "The letters of Nelson are all evidently written for the correspondent alone (.) there the heart speaks rather than the head, and the man appears without disguise. From them the following sketch has been drawn: in no way pretending to a comparison with the beautiful narrative of Southey, but hoping to compensate for its inferiority in style by its greater correctness in facts.".
