This is an auction for EMMA HAMILTON by Norah Lofts.

Amazon.com reviews:

"Born a poor country girl of immense charm, wit, kindness and ambition, Emma Hamilton becomes the wife of connoisseur and antiquarian Sir William Hamilton, then meets and falls in love with the darling of the British public - Horatio Nelson. With extraordinary sensitivity, author Nora Lofts has captured the changing, volatile, and intriguing character of Emma Hamilton. Loft's lucid narrative is enhanced by selections from Emma's letters and many portraits by the talented painters of her time."

"FIVE STARS!!! I knew nothing about Emma Hamilton until I read this book. She was a very interesting person but Norah Lofts could make anyone fascinating. Her insights into personality are amazing."

"Written by Norah Lofts, Antonia Fraser's daughter, EMMA HAMILTON is a wonderful book. Emma was married to Sir William Hamilton when she started her famous love affair with Admiral Horatio Nelson. Emma had cover girl looks. Before she married Sir William, Emma was a model back in England for the famous 18th century portraitist, George Romney. Sir William and Emma lived in Naples where William was the British Ambassador during the Napoleonic Wars. Sir William passed away and Admiral Nelson was killed at the Battle of Trafalgar. Emma was left with Nelson's love child and labelled the mistress in polite British society."
