Master And Commander


Cover art for Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey-Maturin series book. Jack Aubrey’s first command, the little 14 gun brig-sloop Sophie, is seen here peacefully moored in Port Mahon, Minorca. Though Sophie was only the size of a yacht, (seventy-eight feet along the gun deck) she carried a crew of eighty or ninety. The blue flag signifies that she belongs to an Admiral of the blue squadron.
