The Barker Collection
Manuscripts of and relating to Admiral Lord Nelson
edited by Sir John Knox Laughton

In 1913, Sir John Knox Laughton published 29 letters of Nelson alongside of letters by Sir William and Lady Hamilton, and other relatives, from the collection of Frederick Barker (d in 1908).

Many of these letters were used by Clarke and McArthur in their (very ponderous) Life of Nelson but heavily "edited".

This little book is very scarse today (it probably was printed in a little number of copies).
