In writing to Mr. Johnson, I have expressed to him my greatest pleasure in this fulfillment of a long-cherished wish of my husband that his Pirate stories should be collected in a book. This book far exceeds, I am sure, his highest hopes and I thank you for it in his name, as well as in mine." A splendid copy of a rare edition. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 2971
