[moderate wear to spine ends and bottom corners, private library stamp on front pastedown; jacket has quite a few small tears along the top and bottom edges (nothing too serious, and with very little paper loss), partial rubber-stamp (same private library stamp) visible near bottom of front panel, a few tiny black crayon marks on rear panel]. (color and B&W plates; line drawings) A collection of Pyle's pirate stories and his vivid, iconic images of the buccaneers themselves, all brilliantly evoking the "roistering, adventurous, daredevil spirit" of these "cruel but picturesque sea wolves who once infested the Spanish Main." Merle Johnson's assessment of Pyle's significance, in his Foreword, is spot-on: "It is improbable that anyone else will ever bring his combination of interest and talent to the depiction of these old-time Pirates, any more than there could be a second Remington to paint the now extinct Indians and gun-fighters of the Great West." In addition to the 36 listed plates (25 in black & white, 11 in color), the book also contains three smaller illustrations (one in black & white, two in color) tipped onto pages 3, 232 and 239, and there are numerous smaller drawings sprinkled throughout the text. If you can flip through this book without slipping into pirate arrrgghh-got, you've got more self-control than I do, matey.
