Complete set of first printings of all 21 books in the Sharpe series, each volume signed on the title page by Cornwell.
I never thought there would be this many books – I imagined there might be ten or eleven – but then along came Sean Bean and the television programmes and I virtually began a whole new Sharpe series." – Bernard Cornwell, "About the Sharpe books"
This historical adventure series follows a single hero, the British soldier Richard Sharpe, through the Napoleonic Wars; through Sharpe's eyes we see Trafalgar, Waterloo, and more. Cornwell has distinguished himself for the depth of historical detail he brings to books, which manages to add richness rather than weight. The series is comprised of: SHARPE'S EAGLE (1981); SHARPE'S GOLD (1981); SHARPE'S COMPANY (1982); SHARPE'S SWORD (1983); SHARPE'S ENEMY (1984); SHARPE'S HONOUR (1985); SHARPE'S REGIMENT (1986); SHARPE'S SEIGE (1987); SHARPE'S RIFLES (1988); SHARPE'S REVENGE (1989); SHARPE'S WATERLOO (1990); SHARPE'S DEVIL (1992); SHARPE'S BATTLE (1995); SHARPE'S TIGER (1997); SHARPE'S TRIUMPH (1998); SHARPE'S FORTRESS (1999); SHARPE'S TRAFALGAR (2000); SHARPE'S PREY (2001); SHARPE'S HAVOC (2003); SHARPE'S ESCAPE (2004); and SHARPE'S FURY (2006). In beautiful condition, with each volume signed, quite a desirable set.
