The Novels of Captain Marryat; Volume 19. / "Captain Frederick Marryat (1792–1848) was a British Royal Navy officer, novelist, and an early pioneer of the sea story. He is best known for his works of nautical fiction based on his own experiences in the Royal Navy. Marryat served in the Royal Navy from a young age, seeing action in the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812. He rose to the rank of captain, and his experiences at sea greatly influenced his later writing. After retiring from the Navy, Marryat turned to writing. His first novel, "Frank Mildmay," was published in 1829 and was an immediate success. He went on to write many more novels, including "Peter Simple," "Mr. Midshipman Easy," and "The Children of the New Forest." Marryat's novels are known for their realistic depiction of naval life and their blend of adventure and humor. His works were popular during his lifetime and influenced later writers of nautical fiction, including Herman Melville and C.S. Forester. In addition to his novels, Marryat also invented a maritime flag signaling system, known as Marryat's Code, which was widely used until the development of the International Code of Signals. Captain Frederick Marryat remains an important figure in the history of nautical fiction, and his novels continue to be read and enjoyed today."—Bing
