Very Good in a Very Good dust jacket. First Edition/First Printing/First Issue THUS. The first five titles, including H.M.S. Surprise, in the Aubrey-Maturin series were published in both the UK and US. No subsequent titles were issued until Norton published the Letter of Marque in 1990. The first US appearance for the remaining novels (from The Fortune of War through The Reverse of the Medal), was in 1994 as part of the Norton Uniform Edition. This is the true first edition/first printing of the Norton Uniform Edition with the $22.50 price on the dust jacket (later issues show $24.00 or no price on the dust jacket), a first printing indicated by the number line down to "1”, the list of titles through "The Wine Dark Sea" on the copyright page, and "11-94" on the rear dust jacket panel. Buff colored spine with "III" at the bottom. The book is Very Good with just some minor spine lean and a hint of soiling to the top edge of the text block. The text is clean and bright and the text block is tight. The mylar protected dust jacket is Very Good with minor shelf wear. Overall a very attractive copy of the first Norton Uniform edition of this title. EXTREMELY SCARCE. We grade our books very conservatively to insure your satisfaction. Photos available on request.
