Jane Austen and the Navy. Second edition revised and corrected.

SKU: 11445-6

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. Jacket has no tears but is a little rough around the edges. Book is very clean. Hambledon and London, London and NY, 2000. Hb, Dj. USED. $50.00
