    Description

    C.S. Forester - Three First Editions - Captain Horatio Hornblower (Various Dates). Set during the turbulent years of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, the Hornblower Saga by author C.S. Forester follows the career of Horatio Hornblower as he grows from a raw and uncertain midshipman into a mature and respected Admiral. Beginning with the publication of The Happy Return in 1937, the Hornblower phenomenon spanned 30 years, finally coming to a close with the release of Hornblower and the Crisis in 1967, the year after Forester's death. Hornblower has proven popular on both the big and small screens, however, from a 1951 movie starring Gregory Peck to 2002's Hornblower and the Hotspur. Truly, there must be a little Horatio in all of us. Offered her are: Hornblower and the Atropos (1953) Green cloth binding, no dust jacket, in good condition with normal wear to the covers. Interior is clean with only minor foxing to the endpapers. Hornblower and the Hotspur, (1962) Fine condition in fine unclipped dust jacket. Slight foxing/soiling to edges. The Hornblower Companion, (1964) Fine condition in fine unclipped dust jacket. Slight foxing/soiling to edges and endpapers.
