The Surgeon's Mate by Patrick O'Brian 1st / 1st 1980
First edition and first print published by Collins in 1980. This is a very near fine copy. The jacket has not been price clipped and shows the correct price of £5.95. The hacket has a very gentle crease to the top left of the panel. It is very complete with no chips or tears and hardly any wear. The book has one or two spots of foxing but it is very minor. The pages are clean and bright. The author's wife Mary O'Brian has written her name to the front free end paper. Overall a highly collectible very near fine copy.
The Surgeon's Mate is the seventh historical novel in the Aubrey–Maturin series. The story is set during the War of 1812 and the Napoleonic Wars.
