Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

First US edition, first print hardback of THE WINE-DARK SEA by Patrick O'Brian and published by W.W. Norton & Company, Inc., New York in 1993. States 'First American Edition' and full numberline 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 on the copyright page. Jacket illustration by Geoff Hunt.

The book is in very good condition (Clean quarter bound blue cloth over white boards with gilt lettering on the spine) with only minor wear to the illustrated dust jacket, which is not price clipped. Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions.

The Wine-Dark Sea is the sixteenth volume in the Aubrey-Maturin series.

At the outset of this adventure filled with disaster and delight, Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin pursue an American privateer through the Great South Sea.

The strange color of the ocean water reminds Stephen of Homer's famous description, but it also portends a spectacular submarine volcanic eruption that will create a new island overnight and leave an indelible impression on the reader's imagination.

Their ship, the 'Surprise', is now also a privateer, the better to escape diplomatic complications from Stephen's mission, which is to ignite the revolutionary tinder of South America.

Jack will survive a desperate open boat journey and come face to face with his illegitimate black son; Stephen, caught up in the aftermath of his failed coup, will flee for his life into the high, frozen wastes of the Andes; and Patrick O'Brian's brilliantly detailed narrative will reunite them at last in a breathtaking chase through storm seas and icebergs south of Cape Horn, where the hunters suddenly become the hunted...

261 pages. With an illustration of a Square-Rigged Ship and a terminology of the various sails.

ISBN: 0 393 03558 1
