The Young Hornblower - C. S. [Cecil Scott] Forester

Book Club Associates, 1978, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with a short closed tear at the foot of the spine. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper with a small ding to the middle of the upper board. Text complete, clean and tight.

From the cover: “The Young Hornblower — a truly formidable force in His Majesty’s Service. The seventeen-year-old Hornblower became notorious as soon as he stepped on board ship - as the midshipman who was seasick in Spithead. But he was soon to gain his sea legs. Amid battle, action and adventure he proves himself time and time again — courageous in danger, resourceful in moments of difficulty and decisive in times of trouble. The reader stands right beside him as he prepares to fight his first duel, feels the heat as he battles to control a blazing ship and shares his horror as he experiences for the first time the panic of the Plague.”
