Publisher's note

The general interest that persists in publications concerning Lord Nelson prompts us to reprint, for the first time, this contemporary life. Although by no means the best of the many lives available, it does hold some interest as reflecting the man as he appeared to his contemporaries. The engravings in the original work were neither striking nor memorable and have been omitted, the frontispiece portrait alone being retained. A facimile letter from Admiral to Mr. Thomas Lloyd, dated January 29th., 1798, has also been omitted as being of little interest.

This edition is published by Mr.Paul Minet, Bookseller of London, and printed by photo-lithography from the original typeface by Susan ulley Ltd., also of London. Copies are to be had from Mr. Minet or from reputable booksellers.

My Postage and Returns Policies

If you wish to return a book please let me know as soon as possible but no later than three days after receipt. 

If you feel, and I agree after we have discussed it, that my description was misleading or inaccurate then, upon the receipt of the book in the condition you received it, I will then refund all your payment plus your return postage. 

If the book isn't what you really wanted and if we agree, then, upon my receipt of the book in the condition you received it, I will then refund your bid price.

I have found, so far, that the majority of my buyers are genuine.

For my part I try and describe the books as fairly as possible - I am not a professional - and do not like buyers to feel dissatisfied. 

My Postage and Packing charges are calculated before wrapping as best I can with a very nominal amount added for packaging costs.

I am happy to pack together multiple buys made within a seven day period and post at cost as long as total value of purchases in the packet does not exceed the Royal Mail's built in compensation, which at the moment is £34.00.
