Order Nr. 139164

Rising above the life of English rural poverty to which she had been born, Emma Hamilton charted her own course to fame. Servant, mistress, actress, and artistic muse, she became the wife of the English ambassador to the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies in Naples, Sir William Hamilton, and later the mistress of naval hero Admiral Horatio Nelson. Telling the story of the life of Lady Emma Hamilton (1761?-1815), this exhibition catalogue highlights materials from both the Jean Kislak Collection and Penn's Rare Book & Manuscript Library.
