O'BRIAN, PATRICK. - The Commodore.

London, HarperCollins. 1994, First Edition. (ISBN: 0002555506) Hard Cover with dust jacket. Ill.: Geoff Hunt cover art. 282 pp, 8 3/4" H. Number 17 in the Aubrey Maturin series of adventure in the great age of sail finds Jack Aubrey promoted to Commodore. "Command of a squadron calls for different skills from command of ship. It is the charatcter of the captains and the fighting and sailing qualities they can deliver from the men and ships entrusted to them that an admiral or a commodore must reckon with. Here perhaps Jack has sharpened his perceptions from his long association with Stephen Maturin, his indispensable surgeon and close friend. But might the nature of the secret mission on which the squadron is sent present a conflict of loyalties to this complicated, inscrutable figure?" Faint tanning in margins of pages, very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, very light browning to edges of text block. Dust jacket has wrinkling at top of spine - very light edge wrinkling elsewhere. Very Good/Very Good.
