The Complete Aubrey/Maturin Novels (Hardcover)
“The best historical novels ever written.”—Richard Snow, New York Times Book Review
Patrick O’Brian’s twenty-one-volume Aubrey/Maturin series has delighted generations of devoted fans, inspired a blockbuster film, and sold millions of copies in twenty-four languages. These five omnibus volumes, beautifully produced and boxed, contain 7,000 pages of what has often been described as a single, continuous narrative. They are a perfect tribute for such a literary achievement, and a perfect gift for the O’Brian enthusiast.
About the Author
One of our greatest contemporary novelists, Patrick O’Brian is the author of the twenty volumes of the best-selling Aubrey/Maturin series, as well as many other books, including Testimonies, The Golden Ocean, The Unknown Shore, and biographies of Joseph Banks and Picasso.
No writer alive can move one as O’Brian can. . . . He is the master.

best we have.
— Mark Horowitz - Los Angeles Times Book Review
“[O’Brian’s novels] will outlive most of today’s putative literary gems as Sherlock
Holmes has outlived Bulwer-Lytton, as Mark Twain has outlived Charles
