  2. 116665

    Biographical Memoirs of Lord Viscount Nelson, c. c. c.

    With observations, critical and explanatory.
    First edition of the first significant post-Trafalgar life of Nelson (the frontispiece is dated 7 January 1806), attractively presented here in the original boards. Charnock was prompted to write his biography by Nelson's "teacher, friend, and correspondent" (ODNB) Captain William Locker ("by him the present work was suggested"): "the information and the letters communicated by Locker gave the book, at the time, a value far above that of the numerous instant memoirs which were produced after Trafalgar" (ibid).

  20. Vikram and the Vampire.

    Vikram and the Vampire.

    or Tales of Hindu Devilry.
    First edition, first impression. Originally issued serially in Fraser's Magazine during 1868. The collection is an abbreviated version of the Baital-Pachisi [Twenty-five Tales of a Vampire] - "an old and thoroughly Hindu repertory. It is a rude beginning of that fictitious history which ripened to the Arabian Nights' Entertainments, and which fostered by the genius of Boccaccio, produced the romance of the chivalrous days, and its late development, the novel - that prose epic of modern Europe … It is not pretended that the words of these Hindu tales are preserved to the letter … I have ventured to remedy the conciseness of their language, and to clothe the skeleton with flesh and blood" (Introduction).
