Hornblower 1st Editions

Post by 80 Winters on Fri 24 Feb 2017, 18:29

For those shipmates with a bit of 'prize money' looking for a place to be spent:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1937-Complete-Hornblower-First-Editions-Lord-Horatio-Happy-Return-Flying-Colours-/192041141021?hash=item2cb68b431d:g:yIoAAOSw2xRYPyB0


Now, if we only knew what Hornblower and Bush spent 'their 100 pounds of prize money' on during their 3 day debauchery. I think this is a 'known event' directly from the hand of C.S. Forester that begs a 'well written' addition to the legend (what would 2 young lieutenants, who were 'total opposites' in their make-up' find to spend that much money on in such a short period on a small Caribbean island?}.

The 'author' might even see 'royalties' enough to purchase this set !!
