Notes: The fourth Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin novel, set in the seas around Madagascar. O'Brian's series of meticulously detailed nautical novels set during the early 19th century set a high bar for historical fiction.
Edition + Condition: First edition (first printing). A near fine copy in a dust jacket somewhat sunstruck at the spine (rather than fading, the color has brightened to green). Boards slightly splayed.
Publication: London: Collins, 1977.
