New York: Putnam's Sons, 1929. First U.S. edition. Published in UK as BROWN ON RESOLUTION. "'Single-Handed' is blood and thunder, but the blood is real and the thunder, the thunder of the twelve inch guns" --Dublin Evening Mail. Brown, trapped on the most remote island of the Galapagos, has the odds against him. A precursor to Forester's Hornblower novels of the sea. Narrow offset on endpapers, otherwise very good to fine in dust jacket with wear on corners and spine ends, tiny hole at bottom of front panel, and tape reinforcement to verso of spine ends.
