Manuscript Document “On the Battle of Trafalgar” 3-1/2pp. quarto, in part: “...I was at the close of that dark morn/ On which our hero conquering died/That very Seaman’s heart was torn/By strife of sorrow and of pride;...Old England’s fleet in all its pride/Which Spain’s & France’s hopes were drown’d/ It was for this that Nelson died/ He died with many a hundred bold/ and honest hearts as ever beat/ But where’s the British heart so cold/ That would not die in such a feat?” Much more. Fine condition. The Battle of Trafalgar was a naval engagement fought by the British Royal Navy against the combined fleets of the French and Spanish Navies, during the War of the Third Coalition (August–December 1805) of the Napoleonic Wars (1796–1815).
