Robert Blake: Admiral and General at Sea
by Hepworth Dixon, with a new introduction by Barry Gough of Wilfrid Laurier University.
This is the biography of the renowned admiral and general, Robert Blake, and, in it, the naval history of England during the 17th century-one of its most dramatic and turbulent periods.
Having been painstakingly researched from official British-state and Blake-family papers and written by one of England's foremost writers of the 19th century, Robert Blake remains an important research volume today. Containing extensive footnote references, this definitive work is reproduced here in the first-ever facsimile of the rare first edition. The volume has been enhanced by a new introduction, written by a well-known maritime historian, and the addition of an index.
Includes: One plate, detailed Table of Contents, modern introduction and index.
