The Thirteen Gun Salute by Patrick O'Brian 1st / 1st 1989
First UK edition and first print published by Collins in 1989. This is a near fine copy. The wrapper has very little if any wear with no chips or tears and no sunning to the spine. It hasn't been price clipped showing the correct price of £11.95 net. The book is also very presentable with no previous owner's marks. The pages have started to brown. Overall a collectible near fine copy.
