Please see the images above for an accurate representation of what the book looks like, but...

A bit of wear around the very edges of the book jacket and a few small discolorations on the back of the jacket, but other than that this book is in wonderful shape.


Readers of The General and Captain Horatio Hornblower will welcome the revival of The African Queen in the Modern Library series. In C.S. Forester's happiest vein, this fabulous tale maintains from first page to last its breathless excitement. An asthmatic steam launch carries a timid Cockney and a maidenly English missionary on a river in Central Africa to the adventure of their lives. Romance triumphs over fate, tropical heat and whizzing bullets. The African Queen is a story of high adventure and suspense, to be read at a sitting and to be relished for a lifetime.
