Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

First edition, first print hardback of MEN OF HONOUR (Trafalgar and the Making of the English Hero) by Adam Nicolson and published by HarperCollins Publishers in 2005. Signed by Nicolson on the title page. Full numberline 1 3 5 7 9 8 6 4 2.

The book is in very good condition (green cloth boards with gold lettering to spine) with light creasing to the top and bottom of the spine. The book is in a very good unclipped dust jacket that has light creasing to the top and bottom of the front and back covers and spine. Internally, the pages are clean and tight, though slightly age tanned at the edges, and there are no tears or other inscriptions. There is the very slightest spinal lean, barely noticeable.

In Men of Honour, Adam Nicolson takes the battle of Trafalgar, fought between the British and Franco-Spanish fleets in October 1805, and uses it to examine our idea of heroism and the heroic. Is violence an essential aspect of the hero? And daring? Why did the cult of the hero flower in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries in a way it hadn't for two hundred years? Was the figure of Nelson - charming, impetuous, considerate, indifferent to death and danger, inspirational to those around him and above all fixed on attack and victory - an aberration in Enlightenment England? Or was the greatest of all English military heroes the product of his time, 'the conjuror of violence' which England at some level deeply required?

317 pages including colour prints of paintings, plus Illustrations, Acknowledgements, Preface, Bibliography and Index.
