Prole, Lozania: Our Dearest Emma.

Prole, Lozania - Our Dearest Emma. Book Club, not dated, 1950s?

There can be few characters so notoriously enveloped in romance as Emma Hart - the simple scullery maid from a country village whose beauty and charm brought her swiftly to fortune and an eternal place in history as the mistress of Horatio Nelson. Emma was born for love. Swiftly seduced by a swaggering sea captain, she was not slow to see where her future lay, nor to improve herself as occasion arose. But she never really knew love till she met Charles Greville, the unscrupulous man who sold here to his uncle, Sir William Hamilton, to pay his own debts. To satisfy further her abundant ambition, she became Nelson's mistress and queen of the world. Nobody guessed that she would have left he Horatio at any time for Greville, her worthless idol. Here is a novel which, using fact, is more tantalizing, more exciting and more dramatic than any fiction - a novel dedicated to a lovely, generous woman who made a God of Love. (prelim). 7½" x 4¾", 286pp, red cloth, black blocking, hardback.

Binding slightly 'cocked'; slightly sunned spine; slight edge-froxing; corners rounded; the odd internal fox spot; very good minus (no inscriptions, no actual bumps, not ex-library) no wrapper.
