Description: Complete and unabridged, this is a very rare and unique edition of the famous tale. Unique in that it has an illustrated glossary of sorts.

It also features a historical/educational section at the end which describes the origins of piracy, and other seafaring related subjects – complete with illustrations.
Illustrated throughout with superb b&w sketches and line drawings.
Covers in excellent condition for age, although the colour from the spine has faded. Previous owner has made a small artistic contribution in green pencil on the inside rear cover. As is to be expected with a paperback of this vintage, the pages are tanned around their edges, but are otherwise completely unmarked, very tightly bound, and haven't a speck of foxing.
