Swallows & Amazons is based on Arthur Ransome's twelve books about adventures in small wooden boats are utterly captivating: you can almost feel the breeze on your cheeks, smell the "pemmican" (corned beef) sizzling in the pan over the fire, see the sun setting over the still water.

Sailing at night, roaming through the woods, camping where and when one wishes. Fictional places, but recognisably based on the Lake District and the Norfolk Broads. If you read Swallows & Amazons books when you were younger, you'll love doing so again; if you didn't, you must. And they are a great gift for children. These are completely unadulterated reproductions of the 1930s hardback originals, authentic in every respect from the line drawings to the dust jackets and gold-embossed spines.

GREAT OFFER! SAVE £16.99! Buy all 12 books for the price of 11. Swallows & Amazons boxed set (exclusive to Nauticalia) for £186.89.

SWALLOWS & AMAZONS IN CLASSIC BOAT magazine. "...it was Nauticalia who came up with the idea of presenting them as a boxed set. With the crossed Swallows and Amazon flags in gold on the ends, it makes a handsome showpiece."  

We have a wide selection of nautical books with something for all ages.

I'm enjoying discussing with my grandson these wonderful stories, and reliving my own childhood and that of my children at the same time.

The availabuility of a set has been a boon. I have collected original editions for a long time and I use these to avoid strssing first editions. It has also been good to revert to the original text after having seen rather too much of the film versions.

This book is so delightful that we needed another copy to pass on to a young friend - we could not part with our own copies as the are so loved. Besides, we felt she would want a copy of her own to keep!
