Nelson, 1965, Series 561 (DJ)


Nelson was the 4th title in the 561 series, colourfully written by L du Garde Peach and illustrated by John Kenney.

In this lively telling of the life of the Nelson, Peach dwells on battles and victories.  The complex personal life and gossip that fascinated contemporary comentators is not mentioned at all.  Neither wife nor mistress feature in the story at all.

This copy:

This copy still has it’s original DJ (not price-clipped) in good condition. There’s rubbing and minor loss head and foot of spine panel, foxing to the dj front panel and a name on the DJ flap (I’ve erased the light pencil you can see in the picture).  The book is in VG condition.  There’s a date stamp on the blue open-wing endpapers and the odd grubby mark but generally the pages are in good shape.
