Jane Austen and the Navy. Second edition revised and corrected.
This is part of the great scholarly legacy Brian Southam left to us. Based on family papers and naval records, this book shows the novelist as a historian of Nelson's Navy, not the navy of great victories but the navy at home, sailors among their families and friends, set against the background of war. It's a beloved addition to our collection, and we're always happy when we have this out-of-print book for our customers. Back of jacket has bottom edge damage, otherwise a very good copy. Hambledon and London, London and NY, 2000. Hb, Dj. USED. $50.00
