Light spotting to top edge, else Fine, in about Fine jacket, (very lightly faded spine panel, but the fugitive orange lettering perfectly legible). King, pp. 211-15. Third installment in the Aubrey-Maturin series of nautical novels (many of which we have on hand) set during and soon after the Napoleonic Wars and concerning the shipboard adventures of Captain Jack Aubrey and surgeon (and secret agent) Stephen Maturin. In this installment, O'Brian sends Aubrey and Maturin to the East Indies aboard H.M.S. Surprise, a French-built Frigate captured by the British in 1796. "It was the beginning of a long love affair between ship and captain. More so than any place on land, the twenty-eight gun Surprise would become Aubrey and Maturin's home." (King) N. B.
