Edward Howard The Memoirs of Sir Sidney Smith


Out of Print for Over 150 Years. Howard's Memoirs of Sir Sidney Smith Who was the greatest British admiral of the Napoleonic Era? Horatio Nelson? Perhaps. But, great as Nelson was, a strong case could be made that Sir Sidney Smith was at least his equal. His exploits were every bit as daring as those of Nelson, and in some ways he accomplished even more. But Nelson got the "good press" and Smith did not, and does not even today. In 1793, during the retreat from Toulon, Smith destroyed more French ships than had been destroyed in any British fleet action prior to that. Yet, he was blamed by Nelson and Collingwood (neither of whom were there) for not destroying more. The first person to defeat Napoleon on land-head-to-head-was not Wellington; it was Smith at the Battle of Acre. Everyone knows about Nelson at Trafalgar; but few people realize that there would probably have been no Trafalgar if Smith had not stopped Napoleon in the east. In 1839, Edward Howard, a writing colleague of Frederick Marryat, wrote the first of two seminal biographies that have appeared of Sir Sidney Smith. It was the only one seen and approved by Smith prior to his death. This valuable source document is reprinted here in it's entirety. A portion of the sale of this book is being donated to The 1805 Club for the maintenance of Sir Sidney Smith's tomb in the Pere LaChase Cemetary in Paris.For more information go to: www.FireshipPress.com

Henty George Alfred By Conduct and Courage: A Story of the Days Nelson

John Barrow The Life and Correspondence of Admiral Sir William Sidney Smith. Vol. I II


The Life of Britain's Most Overlooked Hero Sir Sidney Smith is perhaps the most overlooked star in the constellation of British heros. One of the reasons for this neglect is that he operated at the same time as-and was the primary rival of-Horatio Nelson. Nelson, of course, went on to immortal fame; but few people realize that Smith's accomplishments were in many ways fully the equal of Nelson's. Indeed, it can be argued that Nelson's renown was literally made possible by the exploits of Sir Sidney Smith. Barrow's life of Sir Sidney was the second volume on Smith ever compiled; but it is, by far, the most comprehensive. It is a book, however, that almost didn't get written. In 1848, Richard Bentley, a publisher, bought a collection of old manuscripts and papers and found that it contained a large quantity of material written by Sir Sidney. He called in an accomplished writer, John Barrow, to see if there was enough material to publish a biography. There wasn't. Barrow was about to give up when, by chance, he mentioned the project to his father. His father had an old acquaintance by the name of Septimius Arabin, a retired Royal Navy captain and a close friend of Sir Sidney. Barrow contacted him, and hit a gold mine. Arabin had boxes and boxes of manuscripts, letters and other documents, all given to him by Sir Sidney in his will, in case anyone should ever want to write the story of his life. He also put Barrow in contact with Smith's two brothe...

Joseph Hepburn Parsons Overlooked Hero. A Portrait of Sir Sidney Smith


Lost for almost 100 years. An engaging portrait of the man who is arguably the greatest Admiral of the Napoleonic Wars-Sir Sidney Smith. Everyone knows the two greatest heroes and the two greatest battles of the Napoleonic Wars. They were Admiral Horatio Nelson's victory at Trafalgar, and Field Marshall Arthur Wellesley's victory at Waterloo. However, it's entirely possible that there would have never been a Trafalgar or a Waterloo if it had not been for one man-Sir Sidney Smith. Sir Sidney who? Yes, exactly. That's the point of this book. Joseph Parson paints an unforgettable portrait of a truly overlooked hero. It is not a history or a biography, as it makes no pretense at being exhaustive. Rather, in a short, easy to read, volume, he paints a vivid portrait of this man, and why he was so important. Consider just three of his many feats: In 1793, at Toulon, Sir Sidney personally destroyed 10 French ships of the line, and Nelson criticized him for not having destroyed more. In 1798, Nelson defeated 13 French ships at the Battle of the Nile. What would have happened if Nelson had faced 23 French? Would there have even been a battle, or would the hunter have become the hunted? In 1799, Napoleon marched out of Egypt to take Constantinople. To do that, he had to take the city of Acre first. In a two-month battle, a British naval officer-Sir Sidney Smith-defeated Napoleon, head-to-head, on land. His immediate superior, Admiral Nelson, never lifted a finger to help...

Howard George The Admiral's Steward


The reflections of an old man late in the Victorian era lead back to before he was born. Thomas Spencer, Admiral's Steward, has first sight of Mary Hever, his future wife, on the Bay of Naples in December 1798, just as Lord Nelson is about to evacuate the Neapolitan royal family to Palermo. The dire sea voyage is followed not just by a developing relationship between Thomas and Mary, but also between Nelson and Emma, Lady Hamilton, while elderly Sir William Hamilton is ill. Over the ensuing year, Thomas's devotion to his duty with Nelson results in Mary and himself becoming dupes of Emma and Nelson in a deception so scandalous it would have brought ruin on Nelson and the Hamiltons had it been discovered. When those famous three quit the Mediterranean in 1800, Thomas and Mary have to take the infant Horatio William Spencer back to England as their own. The growing child is deceived even as to the year of his birth and the death in battle of Nelson means plans for his future must change.

Theodor Holm Nelson Philosophy of Hypertext


Ted Nelson's PhD thesis, 2002, with emphasis on philosophy of description and connection. Nelson sees everything as connected; writing is the difficult process of subtraction and sequentializing. Nelson argues that parallel, connected pages are the most general form of writing. This combines both sequence (on the page) and connection (between pages). Parallel pages offer many variations and possibilities, and can best represent not only such historic connections as the Talmud, the Rosetta Stone, but history itself.
