The Post Captain - John Davis

Tops'l, 1984, Paperback ..
Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Upper wrapper slighty curled with creasing to the corners. A somewhat scuffed and faded appearance overall. Text complete, clean and tight.

Introductory chapters and glossary by Colin Elliott. Cover design and sketches by Peter Stuckey. “The Post Captain” is different and unique among sailing navy novels in being funny. It is almost certainly the only surviving contemporary humorous sea story of the Nelson period. It first made its appearance while England was still agog with the news of Trafalgar and Nelson not yet buried.
