1 Uden, Grant The Loss of the Royal George
London Macdonald 1970 0356031101 / 9780356031101 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good Usborne, Karen 
Gilt title on green boards which are clean and unmarked with no wear. Internally there is some foxing to endpapers and a small name to half title page else clean, tight and unmarked. Dustjacket is VG+ and is not price clipped. The Royal George stayed afloat for only 26 years yet had a long and extraordinary history from her launching in 1756 right up to the present day (the lions surrounding Nelson's column in London's Trafalgar Square were made from the salvaged metal of her guns). She played a leading part in Admiral Hawke's victory over the French at Quiberon Bay in 1769, played a minor role in the 1st Battle of Cape St. Vincent in 1780 when Admiral Rodney defeated the Spanish fleet, and Anson, Rodney, Boscawen and Howe were among the great sailors who flew their flag in her.Illustrations by Karen Osborne. **** NOT EX LIB ****
