Details
Swallows and 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 and 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. Hardcovers. GREAT OFFER - Save £16.99! Get 12 books for the price of 11 when you buy the Swallows and Amazons boxed set (exclusive to Nauticalia). SWALLOWS and 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."

Excellent value. Just one comment: The box housing for the books is to tight when all books are loaded. The means you risk damaging the binding when you remove a book.
Nauticalia Customer service
Thank you for your comments. These books are so popular. I will contact you personally regarding the problem with the sleeve.

A brilliant read, a rhapsody of oriental derring-do and unexpectedly entertaining.
A thoroughly coherent opus.

I assume these books are hardovers? Do you also have them available as paperbacks?
Nauticalia Customer service
These are only available in hardback.

Is the slipcase for the complete set of 12 Swallows and Amazons books available for purchase by itself?

My father already has a vintage collection of the books in hardback which, from the looks of the remaining dust jackets, is same set as you are selling. So I think they'd fit perfectly, and the display case would be a very nice gift for him Christmas.

Thanks for your time,
Andrew
