by [O’BRIAN Patrick]
New York: W. W. Norton & Company, (1994). First U.S. edition. original blue cloth spine lettered in gilt over light blue boards. Fine/pictorial dust jacket (fine). Octavo. In 1803 Napoleon smashes the Peace of Amiens, and Captain Jack Aubrey, R. N. taking refuge in France from his creditors, is interned. He escapes from France, from debtor's prison, from a possible mutiny, and pursues his quarry straight into the mouth of a French-held harbor. Stephen Maturin's struggles, with himself as much as with a proud and intelligent woman, are woven into Aubrey's, straining their friendship at times to the breaking point. - from the dust jacket.
