Set of 21 novels written by Captain Frederick Marryat ( 1792 – 1848 ) and bound for members of the Larchmont Yacht Club with burgee on covers. Marryat was a Royal Navy captain who made the rank of Post Captain and had a very swash-buckling career, including many scientific discoveries and interests, he resigned his commission in 1830 to focus full-time on his writing career. He wrote a large number of seafaring and children’s books. Patrick O’Brian, the author of the Jack Aubrey series was very influenced by Marryat, as was the author of the Horatio Hornblower series.
