In one double-page spread a flapper in evening dress guides a pirate towards the end of a plank by the barrel of a gun. Another double-page spread at the rear of the book shows a pirate burying his chest of treasure as a film crew shoots in the background. Publisher's cloth spine and boards, color plate affixed to front cover. Spine soiled, small crease to frontispiece plate. In a custom cloth slipcase with red morocco label Illustrated with 36 full-page plates (of which 12 are in color) on glossy paper, and numerous illustrations in black and white throughout the text, this copy EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED on the endsheets with 7 watercolor drawings (5 full-page) by Merle Johnson, signed ("Merle Johnson" or "M.J.") xvii, [1], 247 pp. 4to First edition, no. 21 of 50 copies only on Japan vellum stock, signed by Merle Johnson on the limitation page.

Howard Pyle's work is well described in the forward written by Merle Johnson: "Pyle, artist-author, living in the latter half of the nineteenth century and of the first decade of the twentieth, had the fine faculty of transposing himself into any chosen period of history and making its people flesh and blood again it is improbable that anyone else will ever bring his combination of interest and talent to the depiction of these old-time pirates. " Pyle revolutionized American book illustration and provided inspiration to young illustrators throughout the twentieth century. Most of the artwork and stories were originally published with the Century Company and Harper's Magazine. Some stories included are "Buccaneers and Marooners of the Spanish Main," "Jack Ballister's Fortunes" and "Captain Scarfield." ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 247 pp; Signed by Compiler.

Item Description: Harper & Brothers, New York, 1921. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dj. Howard Pyle (illustrator). 9.25 x 12.25 Inches. A very good, tight, intact copy without DJ, but covered with Mylar. This titan of the Brandywine School taught his students well, but hardly any of them surpassed their teacher -- with the exception, perhaps, of N.C. Wyeth. Still, Howard Pyle stands tall, and perhaps never moreso than in his depiction of Pirates. A great gift for yourself, or for some piratical friend. Bookseller Inventory # 001569
