The Unknown Shore
An pre-Aubrey and Maturin novel from Patrick O'Brian
First edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 13cm, 256pp.
This novel from Patrick O'Brian is the story of two friends, Jack Byron and Tobias Barrow, who sail aboard HMS Wager as part of the voyage around the world led by Anson in 1740. Their ship did not make it all the way around the world, unlike the flag ship. The novel is a fictionalised version of actual events which occurred during the Wager Mutiny.
A fair copy. The book itself is in good condition but with some spotted foxing to the page edges. The dustwrapper is creased and worn along the edges and is faded to the spine but has not been price-clipped.
Please note: Due to the recent price rise for final mile delivery from USPS, our postage rates to the US have had to rise. We apologise for this but have no choice.
