Master and Commander

Today's piece is the first of Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin novels, Master and Commander.  I came to the books through the movie, which is one of my very favorite sea movies, but I've only read up through The Mauritius Command, because reading them made me want to do a naval book WAY too much and I won't be able to do so until probably 2015, maybe 2016.  So I'm holding off on reading the rest until then in order to spare myself the (non-Bloomian) agony of influence.

The picture was drawn by cartoonist Chris Schweizer, a big fan of ships, naval battles, nautical fiction, and swashbuckling.
Original Art: SOLD!
