First off, be forewarned that "Le Secret de La Licorne" ("The Secret of Unicorn") is only the first half of a two-part Tintin adventure, so do not get all bent of shape when you get to the end of this 1943 adventure and Tintin looks out and you and tells you to find out what happens next in "Le Tresor de Rackham le Rouge" ("Red Rackham's Treasure"). As our story opens, Dupont & Dumond are trying to solve a rash of pockets being picked and Tintin decides to buy on impulse a model of an old galliard ship. But suddenly two other gentleman want to buy the model from Tintin, who refuses because he intends the model to be a gift to his friend, Captain Haddock. Then Tintin finds a small piece of parchment that was hidden in one of the masts talking about a treasure and a ship called the Unicorn. The mystery deepens when it turns out that Sir Francis Haddock, an ancestor of Tintin's good friend, was the captain of the Unicorn. After the captain tells the exciting story of Sir Francis and his glorious victory over the dreaded Barbary buccaneers, Tintin races off to track down the final pieces of the puzzle that will tell where the treasure of the Unicorn can be found.
This is only Captain Haddock's third Tintin adventure but he is already as important to the story as Milou. Nestor and Marlinspike Hall make their first appearance in "The Secret of the Unicorn" with Professor Tournesol making his unforgettable first appearance in the second half of the tale. Hergé is obviously staying as far away as he can from what is happening in Europe during World War II, but that does not take away from the fact this is a first rate tale of detective work by our intrepid hero and the second half is an equally fun adventure as Tintin and company race for "Le Tresor de Rackham le Rouge."

I ordered this for a Christmas gift, and received it about a week later. Everything was in good shape. Would definately do business again.
