Where did Sophie battle the Cacafuego? Where is Aubrey's beloved Ashgrove cottage? What route did Maturin take with his bear? What's so desolate about Kerguelen Island? What's the best route from Botany Bay to Moahu? Find the answers to these and hundreds of other questions in this indispensable guide to the terrain and cartography of O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin novels. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
This atlas tracks the routes taken and summarizes the plots of all 17 of O'Brian's Napoleonic sea sagas. Featuring a redoubtable pair of British buddies, the series recounts their nautical adventures in the course of fighting the dastardly French or bumptious Americans. As Aubrey and Maturin direct their good ship Surprise around the globe at the admiralty's beck and call, the authors present original maps that pinpoint the novels' pursuits and battles, and they spice the graphics with contemporary drawings of significant ports and forts (like Gibraltar) that were printed in the Royal Navy's official yearbook of those times. As a novelty spin-off, these maps by fans for fans will be popular if an individual library records steady circulation of O'Brianiana. (If so, don't overlook a previous spin-off, O'Brian's Men-of-War , a description of ships in the series.) Gilbert Taylor --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

The maps themselves are rather basic, but in their favor Mr King does place as well as possible fictitious places as well as actual.
If you find a good deal, then by all means add it to your collection. It's not a bad book, and until a better version is published (which is doubtful) it does an adaquate job.

My hat goes off to Dean King for Harbours. It is an excellent book that is extremely helpful when navigating Patrick O'Brian's novels. Keep them coming Dean!Published on Dec 18 2003
I am very disappointed with Dean King's efforts here. Where is this great prodigy of maps that the book seems to promise? Read morePublished on July 2 2001 by geordie191@hotmail.
