~ Nelson’s leben nach dem Englishen. Bremen: Johann Heinrich Müller, 1807.

2 vols., 8vo (181 × 106 mm.), pp. [x], 298, [4] (corrigenda and directions to the binder), including frontispiece portrait, five engraved maps and an engraved plate; [iv], vi, 474, [2] (corrigenda), including folding table. Ownership name in an early hand to inside front covers. Contemporary blue boards, manuscript library catalogue numbers in black ink to labels on spine. Lower board, pp. 443-6 and final pages of volume two slightly damp-stained. An excellent copy, totally unsophisticated.

First German edition of Charnock’s biography of Nelson. First published in English in 1806, the work is notable for Charnock's use of Nelson's original letters and first-hand accounts of his life. The engraved plates appear to have been specifically prepared for this rare German edition, of which there appear to be no institutional copies in the UK or US. COPAC/OCLC list no copies in British Libraries (and none outside continental Europe).
