Flying Colours including A Ship of the Line by C.S. Forester 1st 1938


First edition and first print published by Michael Joseph in 1938 in conjunction with the book society. This is a very near fine copy. The boards are very clean and has retained all of its colour especially on the spine. There are one or two light marks on the back board and very occasional mark or two on the textblock. The pages are very clean and the binding is firm. There are no previous owners names or any foxing marks. Overall it is a very near fine copy.


This is the first print copy of this jointly issued Hornblower title which pre-dates the single issue trade copy of Flying colours by one day. A rare title in this condition.
