288 pp, small 4to (10 1/2" H). Profusely illustrated in b&w and colour with reproductions, photographs, maps/battle plans. "(S)ets out to answer any questions about Nelson likely to be raised, either by casual reference or in a more detailed study of the navy, the wars, or the social history of the period. Entries cover people, ships, places and events associated with the man, and extend to contemporary issues like changing interpretations of his actions and motivation. Arranged alphabetically and fully cross-referenced, every subject is accorded enough length for proper discussion, and each is followed by a suggested reading list for those wanting to pursue the topic further. The book concludes with appendices devoted to a full bibliography, a chronology of Nelson's life and times, and a selection of significant documents, some previously unpublished." Light smudge/soiling mark on fore-edge of text block. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top of spine and flap-folds, area of small wrinkles on front panel.
