Seller ID   13017

196 pp, small 8vo (7 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w plates. "The series of minature portraits include many who, great in their own day, are not now so well remembered. Fairfax is among them; so is Monck; Harrison the Regicide; Lord Hawke, victor of Quiberon Bay; Kempenfelt who perished with the Royal George; Admiral Duncan who won Camperdown; Burnaby of Khiva and others. There are also unexpected glimpses such as that of Byron as seen through the eyes of a young naval officer who was present when he swam the Hellespont; the famous Charge of the Light Brigade as it was afterwards refought in clubs and in Parliament; and an astonishing account of that sovereign of whom a wit said 'he is a good egg, though a littlecracked' - W illiam the Fourth." Small bump to top rear corner with slight migration into last few pages, previous owner's embossed stamp on free front endpaper, endpapers browning lightly, small crease on rear cover, tiny foxing marks on edges of text block. Dust jacket is price clipped, has small chips/tears, two old tape repairs, light browning, several small waterstains on spine, now in mylar sleeve. VG-/Fair
