I have not seen any writing on the pages. This is an ex-library book with old library markings and stickers throughout. This is a heavy bulky volume and will be shipped USPS Media Mail. Contest includes: this, the first in the splendid series of Jack Aubrey novels, established the friendship between Captain Aubrey, R.N., and Stephen Maturin, ship’s surgeon and intelligence agent, against a thrilling backdrop of the Napoleonic wars. Details of life aboard a man of war are faultlessly rendered: the conversational idiom of the officers in the wardroom and the men on the lower deck, the food, the floggings, the mysteries of the wind and the rigging, and the roar of broadsides as the great ships close in battle, and much, much more.Thanks for Looking.
