New hardback, with dust jacket. Both in excellent fine condition. RRP 25.00. In February 1880, when Arthur Conan Doyle was only twenty years old, he embarked upon 'the first real outstanding adventure in my life,' seven months as a ship's surgeon on an Arctic whaler. The voyage took the young Conan Doyle into unknown regions and plunged him into dangerous and bloody work on the ice floes of the Arctic seas. His unforgettable adventure was echoed in a number of his early landmarks as a writer. It provides a vivid account of the coming of age of the young man who would go on to create Sherlock Holmes, and of a life at sea that no longer exists. This book will feature a facsimile of this remarkable diary, with a transcript, as well as several non-fiction and fiction pieces based on the experience, including the Sherlock Holmes story 'The Adventure of the Black Peter.' It will also include photographs of the ship, its captain, and young Conan Doyle on deck. The publication of this unknown diary will be welcomed by all fans of Arthur Conan Doyle. 368pp. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and it protects the jacket against wear.

24 British Admirals of the Napoleonic Wars: The Contemporaries of Nelson
Le Fevre, Peter ; Harding, Richard (editors) Chatham Publishing | MBI Publishing 2005 1861762062 / 9781861762061 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine Near Fine Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
Publisher's original blue boards. Both the book and dust jacket are in excellent, near fine condition. Clean and tight. Binding square. Appears unread / little used. Dust jacket not clipped. pp. x, 406. Although Nelson was the most prominent naval officer of the age, he was only the most successful of an outstanding group of commanders that led the Royal Navy to its unprecedented success in the wars of 1793-1815. The contribution of his contemporaries has been neglected, however, largely because so few admirals have received proper modern study. this volume sets out to adjust the record by providing a series of in-depth biographical essays of the most important figures, each written by a well-known specialist in the field. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and it protects the jacket against wear. 304785
