Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe: Struck off the Navy List for a crime he did not commit, Jack Aubrey takes command of a privateer and begins a voyage which may, just may, restore him to the rank. Jack Aubrey is a naval officer, a post-captain of experience and capacity. When The Letter of Marque opens he has been struck off the Navy List for a crime he has not committed. With Aubrey is his friend and ship's surgeon Stephen Maturin, who is also an unofficial British intelligence agent. Maturin has bought for Aubrey his old ship the Surprise, so that the misery of ejection from the service can be palliated by the command of what Aubrey calls a 'private man-of-war' -- a letter of marque, a privateer. Together they sail on a voyage which, if successful, might restore Aubrey to the rank, and the raison d'etre, whose loss he so much regrets. Around these simple, ostensibly familar elements Patrick O'Brian has written a novel of great narrative power, exploring his extraordinary world once more, in a tale full of human feeling and rarely matched in its drama.

Review: When Jack Aubrey is unfairly deprived of his commission in the Royal Navy, Stephen Maturin comes to the rescue, purchasing the captain's former ship and outfitting it as a privateer, to be commanded by...Jack Aubrey. Soon the Surprise is off to sea, on a mission that Aubrey hopes will redeem his good name. The author's grasp of period detail is astonishing as ever--and so is his gift for pure entertainment.

Buchbeschreibung London: Collins [&] Harper Collins, 1970-99, 1970. 20 volumes, octavo. Original boards. With the dust jackets. Master and Commander a little creased and rubbed at the top but still nice and bright, neat ownership signature to front free endpaper of Post Captain, Ionian Mission is price-clipped, The Far Side of The World is price-clipped and has bookplate to front pastedown. Overall an unusually bright set in excellent condition. All first editions, first impressions. The Far Side of The World has a second state dust jacket as usual. The publisher printed the incorrect price on the jacket, an error solved by clipping the old price and adding a sticker for £9.95, as here. Very few survived with the original price intact. A complete set of this celebrated sequence of novels capturing life in the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic wars, which is certainly amongst the best liked series of historical novels ever written.
