Blue at the Mizzen, Patrick O'Brian
5 Patrick O'Brian Blue at the Mizzen
HarperCollins 230490 London 1999 0006513786 / 9780006513780 Softcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin tales are widely acknowledged to be the greatest series of historical novels ever written. To commemorate the 40th anniversary of their beginning, with Master and Commander, these evocative stories are being re-issued in paperback with smart new livery. This is the twentieth book in the series. 'If we had only two or three of Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin series, we would count ourselves lucky; with six or seven the author would be safely among the greats of historical fiction...This is great writing by an undiminished talent. Now on to Volume Twenty, and the liberation of Chile.' WILLIAM WALDEGRAVE, Literary Review This is the twentieth book in Patrick O'Brian's highly acclaimed, bestselling series chronicling the adventures of lucky Jack Aubrey and his best friend Stephen Maturin, part ship's doctor, part secret agent. The novel's stirring action follows on from that of The Hundred Days. Napoleon's hundred days of freedom and his renewed threat to Europe have ended at Waterloo and Aubrey has finally, as the title suggests, become a blue level admiral. He and Maturin have - at last - set sail on their much postponed mission to Chile. Vivid with the salty tang of life at sea, O'Brian's writing is as powerful as ever whether he writes of naval hierarchies, night-actions or the most celebrated fictional friendship since that of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. Blue at the Mizzen also brings alive the sights and sounds of revolutionary South America in a story as exciting as any O'Brian has written. 261 pages. Light browning to page edges. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Fiction::Naval Fiction; Fiction; ISBN: 0006513786. ISBN/EAN: 9780006513780. Inventory No: 230490. Paperback

Master & Commander, Patrick O'Brian
6 Patrick O'Brian Master & Commander
HarperCollins 232036 London 1996 0006499155 / 9780006499152 Softcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket Set sail for the read of your life ...Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin tales are widely acknowledged to be the greatest series of historical novels ever written. Master and Commander is the first of Patrick O'Brian's now famous Aubrey/Maturin novels, regarded by many as the greatest series of historical novels ever written. It establishes the friendship between Captain Jack Aubrey RN and Stephen Maturin, who becomes his secretive ship's surgeon and an intelligence agent. It contains all the action and excitement which could possibly be hoped for in a historical novel, but it also displays the qualities which have put O'Brian far ahead of any of his competitors: his depiction of the detail of life aboard a Nelsonic man-of-war, of weapons, food, conversation and ambience, of the landscape and of the sea. O'Brian's portrayal of each of these is faultless and the sense of period throughout is acute. His power of characterisation is above all masterly. This brilliant historical novel marked the debut of a writer who grew into one of our greatest novelists ever, the author of what Alan Judd, writing in the Sunday Times, has described as 'the most significant extended story since Anthony Powell's A Dance to the Music of Time' 416 pages. Light tanning to page edges. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Fiction::Naval Fiction; Fiction; ISBN: 0006499155. ISBN/EAN: 9780006499152. Inventory No: 232036.

The Mauritius Command - An Aubrey & Maturin Adventure, Patrick O'Brian
7 Patrick O'Brian The Mauritius Command - An Aubrey & Maturin Adventure
HarperCollins 232037 London 2007 0007255861 / 9780007255863 Softcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin tales are widely acknowledged to be the greatest series of historical novels ever written. To commemorate the 40th anniversary of their beginning, with Master and Commander, these evocative stories are being re-issued in paperback with smart new livery. This is the fourth book in the series. Captain Jack Aubrey is ashore on half-pay without a command - until his friend, and occasional intelligence agent, Stephen Maturin, arrives with secret orders for Aubrey to take a frigate to the Cape of Good Hope, under a Commodore's pennant. But the difficulties of carrying out his orders are compounded by two of his own captains - Lord Clonfert, a pleasure-seeking dilettante, and Captain Corbett, whose severity can push his crews to the verge of mutiny. Based on the actual campaign of 1810 in the Indian Ocean, O'Brian's attention to detail of eighteenth-century life ashore and at sea is meticulous. This tale is as beautifully written and as gripping as any in the series; it also stands on its own as a superlative work of fiction. 315 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Fiction::Naval Fiction; Fiction; ISBN/EAN: 9780007255863. Inventory No: 232037. Paperback
