I have 14 paperbacks from the Richard Sharpe series by Bernard Cornwell.  These are the stories brought to life on BBC by Sean Bean.

The first 9 listed are published by Penquin.  The second in their series would be Sharpe's Eagle, which is included in my stack.  As noted, Sharpe's Fortress has a few pages with a slight texture to them, indicating slight water contact at some point.  Actual reading pages & cover are fine.

The books were acquired used, but I do not detect pet nor smoke odors.  On a scale of 1-5 (5 being like new, 1 being ready to disintegrate), I would rate 12 of these books' condition as a 4, with Eagle & Fortress being closer to a 3.

 A very readable series - I glazed over on the tactics, but my husband said that's the part he really enjoyed about them.

I would like to send these out as a lot: 6 credits for all 14 books.

Sharpe's Eagle                                   Spain, 1809         0451212576         (would be #2 in series)
