About this Item: M. an S. brooke, london, 1802. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st ed. 1802. Printed by M. and S. Brooke, Pater Noster Row. London. 12mo: 7.5" x 2.75". The original owner of this book was Rear Admiral Edward Tyrrell Smith, b. 1752- d. 1824. His signature is at the top of the title page. At the time of this book's publication he was a Rear Admiral of the White. He achieved the rank of Admiral of the Blue in 1812, making him one of the highest ranking flag officers of his day. (See below for more on the ranking system of the Royal Navy as it existed in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.) The following extract on the life of Admiral Edward T. Smith comes from The Royal Navy Biography; Or Memoirs of the Services of All the Flag Officers by John Marshall, which was published in 1823. EDWARD TYRRELL SMITH, ESQ. ADMIRAL OF THE WHITE. This officer obtained Post rank, May 2, 1781; and commanded the Endymion, of 44 guns, one of Sir George B. Rodney's repeaters on the memorable 12th April, 1782. He subsequently served on the Jamaica station. During the Spanish and Russian armaments, in 1790 and 1791, he had the Prosperine, of 28 guns; from which time we find no further mention of him until the month of November 1795, when he sailed from England in the Abergavenny, of 54 guns, in company with the late Sir Hugh C. Christian, on an expedition against St Lucia; after the reduction of which island, he proceeded to Jamaica, and in the autumn of 1796, removed in the Hannibal, of 74 guns, on the station, where he continued during the greater part of the war. Captain Smith joined the Carnatic, of 74 guns, at Jamaica, in 1800, and on the first day of the following year, was promoted to the rank of Rear Admiral. He was made a Vice Admiral Nov. 9, 1805; and a full Admiral, Aug. 12, 1812. A good clean solid book for it's age with rare Admiral's signature. Seller Inventory # 1000004473

About this Item: London:, 1790. pp. [12, including initial blank], ff. 40, printed on versos, 8vo, original red morocco, gilt roll tooled borders on sides, flat spine gilt in compartments, lacking lettering piece, a little worn and a few abrasions, engraved armorial bookplate of Sir Thomas Pasley inside the front cover, and the pencil signature of another Pasley on a flyleaf, good. An unrecorded edition of the List of the Flag-Officers, not in ESTC: of the editions recorded in ESTC, from 1758 on, none are common - no doubt they were discarded as new ones appeared. Sir Thomas Pasley's motto is suitably bellicose: 'Pro rege et patria pugnans'. At the end of a long and distinguished career Pasley was promoted admiral of the white on 9 November 1805. In this book he has made several emendations, adding names, noting deaths, and correcting (what must be rather surprising) errors in the printed text. Nelson appears as a Captain, his seniority of 11 June 1779 being 169th. Seller Inventory # 51314
