The Hornblower Companion.
by [Hornblower] Forester, C.S.

Publisher Information:
Michael Joseph, London: 1964.

A Near Fine copy with some light wear to bottom edge of the rear board in a Very good plus unclipped dust jacket with some light soiling and creasing to rear panel. In this beautifully illustrated book, the popular novelist provides a historical naval context to the adventures of the hero of his many books, Horatio Hornblower. Thirty-full-page maps help the reader follow Hornblower's world travels and decorative sketches convey the atmosphere as well as the actions. In this original edition, the book explains how Forester assembled his plots and what events in the Royal Navy inspired the adventures he wrote about.
