Lieutenant Hornblower. C. S. FORESTER.

Lieutenant Hornblower.

London: Michael Joseph, 1952. [Naval fiction] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (19 x 13cm), pp.304. Publisher's mid-blue cloth in pictorial Biro-designed dust-wrapper. One short closed tear to rear. Exceptionally clean and bright. An unquestionably fine copy. Lieutenant Hornblower emerges from his apprenticeship as a midshipman, to the new responsibilities thrust upon him by the fortunes of war between Napoleon and Spain. Enduring near-mutiny, bloody hand-to-hand combat with Spanish seamen, deck-splintering sea battles, and the violence and horrors of life on the fighting ships of the Napoleonic Wars, the young lieutenant distinguishes himself in his first independent command.
