Lieutenant Hornblower.

London: Michael Joseph, 1952. [Naval fiction] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (19 x 13cm), pp.304. Publisher's mid-blue cloth with gilt titles to spine. With the dust-jacket illustrated by Val Biro, priced at 12/6. Toning and spotting to edges, with some light occasional spotting throughout. Cloth sunned to extremities. Jacket toned and sunned to spine, with rubbing and chipping to edges. Very good. 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.
