Write The First Customer Review

A prize winning author paints a fascinating portrait of one of the 18th century's most colorful characters: Sir William Hamilton. Hamilton represented the epitome of honorable public service. But, he's remembered not as a scholar, diplomat, and connoisseur of culture, but for the century's most scandalous "menage a trios" he was the cuckolded husband of Emma Hamilton, mistress of the heroic Lord Nelson. For the first time, Hamilton's unpublished notebooks shed new light on the events.
