Item Description: New York Harper & Brothers Publishers 1921, 1921. First edition, ONE OF ONLY 50 COPIES ON VELLUM STOCK, the first printing from new plates, this being copy number 8 SIGNED by the compiler, Merle Johnson. This copy once belonging to Uniontown, PA. banker J. V. Thompson who made a fortune in coal and built the 11-story First National Bank Building in downtown Uniontown. Profusely illustrated by Howard Pyle, the illustration include 36 tipped-in plates, of which 12 are in stunning color, 2 additional tipped in colour illustrations within the text and many other wonderful illustrations and decorative initials throughout the text. Folio, publisher's deluxe binding of gray boards backed in cream buckram, the front cover decoratively lettered in dark gray and with a colourplate pastedown of Pyle's "Captain Keitt" within a dark gray border, the spine decoratively lettered in gilt, pictorial front free-fly, edges untrimmed. xviii, 247 pp. A fine copy of this rare issue of Pyle's classic. The Japan vellum stock mellowed just a hint as is normal and occasionally with a whisper of offsetting from the plates, all of which are very fine and bright, the boards and white buckram binding very fine as well and beautifully preserved. A BEAUTIFUL COPY OF THIS RAREST ISSUE OF THE ICONIC WORK ON PIRATES, ONE OF THE GREAT ILLUSTRATED BOOKS OF THE ERA. "Why is it that the pirate has, and always has had, a certain lurid glamour of the heroical enveloping him round about? Is there, deep under the accumulated debris of culture, a hidden groundwork of the old-time savage? Is there even in these well-regulated times an unsubdued nature in the respectable mental household of every one of us that still kicks against the pricks of law and order? To make my meaning more clear, would not every boy, for instance—that is, every boy of any account—rather be a pirate captain than a Member of Parliament?" (- from the Introduction).

A very good, tight, intact copy without DJ, but covered with Mylar.
