Book Description
Excerpt from Nelson: And Other Naval Studies It is necessary to state explicitly that this re-issue of a book published in 1909 is in no sense a new and revised edition, but merely a reprint in which not a syllable nor a comma of the text has been changed. I regret that owing to a misunderstanding, for which I am at least partly responsible, I was not informed of the publisher's intention to issue this reprint until the last moment, when it was no longer possible to make any changes in the text. I would, therefore, invite such new readers as it may attract to bear in mind that it was written five years before the outbreak of the Great War which has wrought such vast changes in the methods and aspects of Naval Warfare. As regards the Essay on "Paul Jones," some further explanation is necessary, though it must needs be brief. That Essay was, as I stated in the Preface, "very largely based on what is now the standard American biography of Paul Jones, by Mr. A. C. Buell." The words "standard American biography" must now be unequivocally withdrawn, and for them must be substituted "a work on which no reliance can be placed." When I wrote the Essay I was not aware that Buell's good faith had ever been impugned But shortly after it was published, a letter appeared in the New York Times of August 29, 1909, from the pen of Mrs. Anna De Koven. This lady has since published what is very justly entitled to be called the standard biography of Paul Jones, based as it is on a critical and exhaustive study of all the authentic materials, printed and manuscript, to be found in public libraries and private collections both in the United States and abroad. In her letter, Mrs. De Koven stated that on June 10, 1906, she had contributed an article to the same journal in which she claimed to have "exposed the falsity" of Buell's work.
