About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: H.M.S. Surprise

Publisher: Scranton, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.: W W Norton & Co Inc

Publication Date: 1994

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: Near Fine

Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine

Edition: 1st Edition


Near Fine in a Near Fine dust jacket. First Norton Uniform 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 Near Fine with just very minor bumping at the head of the spine. The text is clean and bright and the text block is tight. The mylar protected dust jacket is Near Fine with minor shelf wear and a small wrinkle at the top of the spine. 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. Bookseller Inventory # 010513004
