Horatio Nelson - The Dispatches and Letters of Vice Admiral Lord Viscount Nelson - Volume 2. PDF

PDF First published between 1844 and 1846, this seven-volume collection of the letters of Lord Nelson (1758 1805) was assembled and edited by antiquarian, historian and former naval lieutenant Sir Nicholas Harris Nicolas (1799 1848), using letters supplied to him by many of Nelson's correspondents. Nicolas was better known for his many works on genealogy and heraldry, but his own naval background drew him to this work. In Volume 1 he asserts that 'the life of a man is best described by himself' and Nelson is subsequently revealed to be a skilled and engaging correspondent. The books document Nelson's long and celebrated career in the Royal Navy, from his appointment as a lieutenant in 1777 to his death at Trafalgar in 1805. Published in 1845, Volume 2 covers Nelson's career from 1795 to 1797, when he was serving in the Mediterranean, and includes the battles of Genoa and Cape St Vincent.
