In Irons

By Buel, Richard G.

New Haven: Yale, 1998. Book. Near Fine. Hardcover. 1st Edition. Odd combination of near perfection and 'flaw'. Books text seems bright, tight and perhaps unread. This said, I corrected a single upper corner dogearing at the end. Additionally the newish jacket has some mild toning that may be light fade or as made. No price on jacket (not unusual for university press) no book club debossing, and a full number line. I feel fairly sure it is not a book club. Sub-title, "Britain's Naval Supremacy and the American Revolutionary Economy". * We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately. We assure the buyer that books listed by Brass Dolphin are so described, using the strict, traditional standards.*.
