Brown cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine. Top stain red. Some foxing to fore-edge and indentations to tail-edge of text block. Otherwise near fine. In very good, unclipped, slightly age-tanned dust jacket, a little rubbed to edges and with some foxing. Translated by Patrick O’Brian. *** First English printing of this French classic adventure novel, based on true events, and turned into the equally successful film starring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman.
