A dmiral, Robert Blake, and in it the Naval History of England during one of its most brilliant periods, has not hitherto been written with either accuracy of outline or copiousness of detail. Readers of the Commonwealth annals know how prominent is his place in contemporary literature how many of his letters are preserved in Tlmrloe and other collectors how frequent are the references to him in the Journals of the House, in broadsides, pamphlets and the various newspapers.
