1 Stockwin, Julian Artemis
New York, NY, U.S.A. Scribner 2002 0743214609 / 9780743214605 First Edition, First Printing Hardcover SIGNED by the Author
Near Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Navy blue boards. The spine is stamped in silver. Octavo. 334pps., plus an Author's Note. There is a small remainder mark on the bottom of the textblock and mild rubbing to the spine-ends, otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Yet to be read. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is indistinctly rubbed at the tips, otherwise as new; the original price is intact. SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on the title-page. Laid in are promotional items: an 'Artemis' postcard, a 'Kydd' postcard, and a flyer for the Thomas Kydd Shipmates' Network. Book 2 of a planned 11-volume series by the highly-acclaimed author of naval adventure.

"With 'Kydd,' Julian Stockwin introduced us to a young wig-maker from Guildford who was kidnapped and pressed into duty with the tempestuous crew of the Duke William battle ship. Now, Thomas Paine Kydd is back -- with a vengeance -- in the latest installment of Stockwin's thrilling naval adventure series. Artemis is the eighteenth-century crack frigate that Kydd and sea-mate Nicholas Renzi are set to sail all the way to the fabled Far East. In this great age of fighting sailing ships, Kydd's voyage promises to be a perilous undertaking. But not even shipwreck, mutiny, or a confrontation with a mighty French frigate manages to thwart Artemis and her crew. It's only when Kydd receives an urgent message from home -- one that threatens to cut short his career and trap him on shore forever -- that Artemis's real journey begins. Filled with mesmerizing suspense and vivid details of Napoleonic-era seafaring, 'Artemis' is classic, page-turning storytelling at its best."

No reading wear and no previous ownership markings. SIGNED by the author on a bookplate acquired directly from him; the bookplate has been laid in.

"...Europe is ablaze with war. The British prime minister is under pressure to intimidate the French and dispatches a Navy squadron to appear off the French coast. To man the ships, ordinary citizens must be press-ganged.
Thomas Paine Kydd, a young wig-maker from Guildford, is seized and taken across the country to be part of the crew of the ninety-eight-gun line-of-battle ship Duke William. The ship sails immediately and Kydd has to learn the harsh realities of shipboard life fast. Despite all he goes through, amid dangers of tempest and battle, he comes to admire the skills and courage of his fellow seamen, taking up the challenge himself to become a true sailor and defender of Britain at war.
Kydd launches a masterly new writing talent and is the first installment of a thrilling new series. Based on dramatic real events, it is classic storytelling at its best, rich with action, exceptional characters, and a page-turning narrative..."
