"Howard Pyle's Book Of Pirates" is a collection of short stories recounting the rip-roaring adventures of swashbuckling pirates and buccaneers in the Spanish Main. Highly readable and magnificently illustrated by the author himself, this volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in pirates and related subjects. Contents include: "The Ghost of Captain Brand," "Tom Chist and the Treasure Box," "Jack Ballister's Fortunes," "The Ruby of Kishmoor," and other tales. Howard Pyle (1853 - 1911) was an American illustrator and author, famous for his books aimed at young people. He is also remembered for his illustrations concerning pirates, and he is considered to be responsible for the modern stereotype of pirate dress. Other notable works include: "The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood" (1883), "Otto of the Silver Hand", (1888), and "Men of Iron" (1892). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
