First omnibus edition of the ten Hornblower novels, here grouped to form a trilogy, this set specially bound for the author’s family, with two posthumous estate labels signed by the author’s great nephew A. S. Troughton-Smith and the binders’ presentation slip loosely inserted.

3 volumes, octavo (210 x 135 mm). Finely bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe in marching but not identical full blue morocco, titles to spines gilt, raised bands tooled in gilt, gilt rule to compartments, single rule to boards, twin rule to turn-ins, all edges gilt. Spines a little sunned, one spine lightly chipped at head, minor blemishes to spines, edges of free endpapers, prelims and end leaves tanned. An excellent set.
