Beschreibung

Carola Mary Anima Oman, Lady Lenanton (1897–1978, CBE 1957), was an English historical novelist, biographer and children's writer. Oman authored more than 30 books of fiction, history and biography for adults and children, but is best known for this highly regarded biography of Nelson. It was considered authoritative, drawing on materials unavailable to previous biographers, and remains a respected work. More than half a century after publication, this work is still called "the standard" of Nelson biography and the author "the greatest of the Nelson biographers". This lovely, jacketed first edition, first printing is a presentation copy from the author, with a touching autograph letter on the author's personal stationery dated "30.10.47", the year of publication. The letter reads, in part: "My dear Marjorie. How very kind of you to write to me about my 'Nelson.' As you know, it was a book achieved under some difficulty, entirely in off-duty hours from Red Crossing." The letter goes on to discuss gardening and family and is signed "Carola". The author's autograph presentation letter is in perfect condition, suffering only some age-toning of the ink. A horizontal crease indicates that it was originally folded and enclosed within an envelope. The book is very good plus in a very good plus dust jacket. The navy cloth binding is square, clean, and tight, with nicely rounded spine, sharp corners, and bright spine gilt. Minor wear is confined to the spine ends and corners. The contents remain clean and bright with no previous ownership marks. Spotting appears confined to the top edge and just few spots on the otherwise clean fore edge. The dust jacket is complete apart from a neatly price-clipped lower front flap. We note modest wear to the hinges and extremities, slight toning to the spine, and some spotting to the rear face. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 002628
