4 Kent, Alexander Success to the Brave
London, United Kingdom Hutchinson 1983 0091537800 / 9780091537807 First Edition, First Printing Hardcover SIGNED by the Author
Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Light blue boards. The spine is gilt-stamped. Map endpapers. 284pps. An excellent copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. No reading wear; the textblock is immaculate. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is flawless. The original price of 7.95 (U.K.) is intact on the front flap. SIGNED by the author -- without dedication or inscription -- on the title-page. ".In the spring of 1802 Richard Bolitho is summoned to the Admirality in London and given his orders for a difficult and, to him, distasteful task. Even an advanced promotion to vice-admiral to make him one of the youngest ever appointed does not compensate for his sudden and thankless mission. Bolitho and his wife are expecting their first child, and for once he is loathe to quit the land for the demands of duty. The Peace of Amiens, signed a few weeks earlier, is already showing signs of strain as the old enemies wrangle over the return of colonial possessions won and lost during the war. In the little sixty-four-gun Achates Bolitho sails West for Boston, and thence to the Caribbean where he must hand over the island of San Felipe to the French."
