Hornblower and The Atropos

FORESTER, C.S. (1899-1966)

Boston; Little Brown and Company. 1953. FORESTER FAMILY COPY. First US Edition. 8vo. Very good indeed in publisher's sea green cloth titled in gilt to spine, light bumping to spine ends. In an acceptable wrapper with fading to the spine panel, and creasing, chipping and a rectangle of loss to the upper edge of the front panel. Internally clean and fresh. INSCRIBED by Forester to his wife, Dorothy on the front flyleaf and bearing the bookplate of the Forester, Troughton-Smith family archive to the pastedown. As we have discovered with the family-related Hornblower titles, often the dustwrappers have suffered somewhat, nevertheless a lovely association copy, housed in a tailor made leather-spined clamshell box.

S Forester's fifth Horatio Hornblower installment, in which that memorable character recives his first command, the 22-gun sloop Atropos. His first assigment is a bit staid: his ship will serve as flagship for the funeral procession of Lord Nelson. Shortly, however, the Atropos is part of the Mediterranean Fleet's harassment of Napoleon, recovering treasure that lies deep in Turkish waters and boldly challenging a Spanish frigate several times her size.
