Mr Midshipman Easy, Captain Marryat
1 Captain Marryat Mr Midshipman Easy
Rylee Classics 243592 Great Britain Hardcover Good Condition Poor Mr Nicodemus Easy was a gentleman who lived down in Hampshire; he was a married man, and in very easy circumstances. Most couples find it very easy to have a family, but not always quite so easy to maintain them. Mr Easy was not at all uneasy on the latter score, as he had no children; but he was anxious to have them, as most people covet what they cannot obtain. After ten years, Mr Easy gave it up as a bad job. Philosophy is said to console a man under disappointment, although Shakespeare asserts that it is no remedy for toothache; so Mr Easy turned philosopher, the very best profession a man can take up, when he is fit for nothing else; he must be a very incapable person indeed who cannot talk nonsense.

Master & Commander, Patrick O'Brian
5 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 Commodore, Patrick O'Brian
6 Patrick O'Brian The Commodore
HarperCollins 236837 London 1997 0006499325 / 9780006499329 Softcover Very 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 seventeenth book in the series. Jack Aubrey's long service is at last rewarded: he is promoted to the rank of Commodore and given a squadron of ships to command. His mission is twofold - to make a large dent in the slave trade off the coast of Africa and, on his return, to intercept a French fleet set for Bantry Bay with a cargo of weapons for the disaffected among the Irish. Invention and surprise follow at every turn in this tale of nineteenth-century seamanship, as rich, as compelling, as masterly as any of its predecessors. 311 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Fiction::Naval Fiction; Fiction; ISBN: 0006499325. ISBN/EAN: 9780006499329. Inventory No: 236837. Paperback
