NELSON, The Alexander Davison Collection Sothebys 2002 Hardback Edition


The Alexander Davison Collection
“Horatio Nelson…the first British hero. the Alexander Davison collection is disclosed, the most significant discovery for more than a hundred years. To read these letters and documents, and to see the mementoes that Davison kept is strangely moving. Alexander Davison was Nelson’s intimate friend, treasurer and advisor “It was not only Nelson who confided in Davison but his wife, Fanny, and his mistress, Emma Hamilton, did so too….Then there are the belongings – Most memorably, the purse said to have been in his pocket at Trafalgar; the swords and the guns; the porcelain; and the dazzling diamond brooch bearing his initials, which still keeps its mystery.
