184 pp, 8vo (8 15/16" H). B&w plates, maps/battle plans. "The Glorious First of June, 1794, the first full-scale naval battle in the war with Revolutionary France, is remembered with honour, even though, strategically, it was not successful. Lord Howe defeated Admiral Villaret-Joyeuse, took six ships of the line, and sank 'Le Vengeur', without losing a single British ship, but a precious convoy, the cause of the action, reached France in safety. Although French sacrifice had not been in vain, Howe had shown that, in general combat, the British navy was incomparable. (This) is the only extensive account of the fight, and of Lord Howe's methods as an admiral, to have been written during the past century. In an Epilogue, Mr. Warner considers the subject of Sovereign's honours and awards to the Royal Navy, which in a particular sense derived from royal recognition of Howe's victory. Mr. Warner at one time served as Secretary to the Admiralty Committee on awards in time of war, and his account is authoritative." Minor browning on free endpapers, previous owner's name in ink at bottom of title page, light edge wear - a little more on bottom edges, light wrinkling at bottom of spine, minor scattered color loss on front board.
