About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: Command a King's Ship.

Publisher: Putnam, New York

Publication Date: 1974

Edition: First Printing of the First Edition


A Fine copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket that is bright without any of the usual sunning to the spine and is not price clipped. Book is tight and bright. It's 1784, the American Revolution is over, there are uneasy truces with France and Spain, and Richard Bolitho is home in England after a cruise in the West Indes. He gets a new ship, as he hoped. But the frigate Undine is setting a course for distant Indonesia, helping to solidify British claims to a territory considered vitally important to the expansion of English trade. But there are plots afoot to foil the plan, as is evidenced fairly quickly when the great Spanish ship Nervion accompanying them on the mission is lured onto a reef and destroyed by slavers. Bolitho, never one to back away from heavy odds, decides to continue the mission alone. Bookseller Inventory # 24173
