The dj having performed its function well suffers from some top edge chipping, minor cover wear, slight tanning of binding and is price-clipped ($ sign still showing). This book was first published in 1847. This book was printed in England. A note about the author. from the copyright page -- "FREDERICK MARYAT was born on 10th August 1792. He was the son of Joseph Marryat, a civil servant, who had written pamphlets in support of the Slave Trade and later became M. P. for Sandwich. Frederick joined the Navy in H.M.S. 'Imperieuse' in 1806. In 1820 he was promoted captain, and took command of the sloop 'Beaver' at St. Helena, where Napoleon was in exile. He remained there until the ex-emperor's death in 1821. After a distinguished career in various parts of the world, Marryat retired from the navy in 1830, and devoted the remainder of his life to writing. His clear, straightforward style makes his novels an important link between those of Smollett and Fielding and Charles Dickens. He died in Langham manor in Norfolk on 9th August 1848." Exquisitely illustrated by Lionel Edwards (7 in color and 14 in B&W). A wonderful color illustration on the front of dj and beautifully decorated covers underneath. Bookseller Inventory # 000833
