Hudson, Roger: Nelson and Emma.

Hudson, Roger - Nelson and Emma. Folio Society 1st, 1994. Love, war; power; romance... the story of Lord Nelson and Emma Hamilton has all the ingredients of a fictional blockbuster. The lovers were both the pride and the scandal of the nation: an indisputable hero, to whose 'Immortal Memory' the Navy still drinks on the anniversary of Trafalgar; succumbing to the very understandable temptations of Emma's earthy and sensual beauty. (Folio Society). 9¾" x 6¾", 256pp, quarter dark blue buckram with vegetable parchment covered sides with inlay colour oval portraits (Nelson on front, Emma on back), hardback. Map endpapers. Printed on Fineblade Smooth Cartridge paper ('art' paper). Index. Over 90 historical illustrations in colour and monochrome. Complete with pictorial slip-case (detail of 'The Battle of Trafalgar' by Nicholas Pocock). Probably unread; fine (no inscriptions, no bumps, not ex-library) complete with very good (small/faint mark in lower-front corner of right-hand side) sound slip-case.
