About This Item

London: Collins,, 1984. Octavo. Original green boards, titles to spine gilt. With the price-clipped dust jacket. Spine ends lightly bumped, margins of text block lightly tanned, as always. Otherwise an excellent copy in a delightfully bright jacket with some very gently rubbing to spine ends. First edition, first impression with the second state dust jacket of the tenth book in O'Brien's Aubrey-Maturin series. The publisher printed the incorrect price on the dust jacket and solved the error by price-clipping the jacket and adding a sticker for £9.95; this copy lacks the sticker. Very few survived with the original price. Cunningham A19a.
