11 Nelson's Duchy: A Sicilian Anomaly
Pratt, Michael Spellmount Limited Staplehurst, Kent 2005 186227326x / 9781862273269 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine Near Fine Book 4to - over 9 - 12" tall 
Both the book and dust jacket are in excellent, near fine condition. Appears unread. Clean and tight. Unmarked. RRP 25.00. pp. xxiii, 280. This unique book describes the history of the Duchy of Bronte, the Sicilian estate given to Admiral Lord Nelson by the grateful Neopolitan Bourbons in 1799 for saving them from the revolutionary mob and the French army, an extraordinary anomaly in a remote and beautiful setting. This book describes not only the story of the estate and its very foreign owners, but also that of the English in Eastern Sicily during the 19th and 20th centuries. Not only was the Castello di Maniace the seat of a dukedom, but the estate had been one of Sicily's greatest mediaeval abbeys and played a significant part in the island's past. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and it protects the jacket against wear. 304420 
Price: 7.50 GBP
