The Nutmeg of Consolation by Patrick O'Brian, 1st/1st, 1991
This is a near fine copy of Patrick O'Brian's 'The Nutmeg of Consolation' in first edition, first impression. London, Collins, 1991. The dusty jacket is in fine condition, without signs of shelf wear and it has not been price clipped. The boards are free from chips and marks and remain tight to the spine. The text blocks are generally bright and clean, but suffer from light foxing and yellowing. Overall this is a very near fine copy.
The Nutmeg of Consolation is the fourteenth historical novel in the Aubrey-Maturin series by British author Patrick O'Brian, first published in 1991. The story is set during the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812.
